If you see abook listed for less somew else, the chances are that the shipping and handling charges will marginalize that âeoebargainâe. And so called âeoeFree shippingâe? Well, donâe(tm)t you love paying three times what you should? Be careful of "standard rate shipping", usually it means you will pay a lot more than you should. On this topic, I do not, like many other sellers try to make money with inflated shipping costs. By default, most of my listings fall into the 1-2 lb range. Sometimes, a lighter book thus gets entered into the wrong category. You should only actual shipping only âe" if you are erroneously overcharged, you will be credited.

"The Compassionate Christ"

This Protestant icon is known as "The Compassionate Christ" and the artist is Fern Beckham . It is a print that does not appear too often
on EBay and it is a pleasure to be able to offer it . Framed, it measures, 17 x 14 inches. As with many famous works that capture the imagination, t is a story behind this rendering, and t is a pamphlet describing this in detail that accompanies the print:

Husband and wife, Dewey and Veda Mauck ,were both air pilots with small airline in Oklahoma back in in the nineteen twenties and thirties. They were close friends of the Lindbergs, and others who were in the aviation field. Dewy and Veda were very devout Christians, active in the church, and according to all who knew them personally, very attached to the person of Jesus Christ, their Lord and God. One night in their bedroom, Christ appeared to them. T was, according to their report, a beautiful orange scent which permeated the entire room. Both were awed by the beautiful compassionate eyes of Christ which left an indelible impression on them both. Christ told them that he would be with them always. Whether He also told them that in imitation of Him, they would both share in His redemptive work by their suffering, is unknown. Veda's eyesight grew worse and worse, and they feared total blindness. Much to her surprise and joy, the amazement of her husband, and the doctors who had been treating her with very little success, she suddenly had her eyesight restored. Sometime after her miraculous cure, Dewey contracted terminal cancer, and was not given much time to live. He too was cured. But shortly after, another tragedy struck. They went bankrupt and lost their aviation business completely. This was a sign from God, so they decided to devote themselves totally to the church, which they did faithfully until their death. To recall that night when Christ appeared so vividly to them in their bedroom, they sought out a woman who was well known for her portrait sketches, and told her of Christ's appearance to them, and what struck them the most-------His eyes. Working from her own vast experience, and the story of that night, this artist by the name of Fern Beckham set about to make this sketch which has been popular in prints since about the year 1980.
