Hardback

Winner of the Australian Christian Book of the Year 2017 award.

Compiled by award-winning Australian author Christobel Mattingley and Bible Society Australia's Louise Sherman, Our Mob, God's Story is an art book with a difference! It features over 115 works in an exciting variety of styles and stories by over 65 established and emerging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists. These artists are well-known and unknown, from communities, towns and cities across Australia, from Tasmania to the Tiwi Islands, from Ceduna to Cairns, from Perth to Wongthaggi, sharing their faith in over one hundred paintings inspired by Bible verses and stories, many well-loved, others not so well known, from Creation to the Crucifixion.

This publication has been funded by a generous donor and all proceeds will go towards publication of Scripture in mother tongues of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander groups. With a foreword by distinguished Aboriginal artist and educator Miriam-Rose Ungunmerr Baumann, Our Mob, God's Story is an important contribution to Australian art. Celebrating the bicentenary of Bible Society in Australia, it is a powerful and beautiful witness to God's love for the traditional custodians of this ancient continent which we now call Australia, and to the talent of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists.

This beautiful hard-covered book would make a wonderful addition to any book collection. It comes with a dust jacket and slip case, making it perfect for gift-giving.

Cover art: 'Sacred Place' by Safina Stewart.

Beautiful!
5 stars By YDLife, Jun 29 2017
This quality hardcover is a national treasure! The artwork is so beautiful, but that it's a visual retelling of the Christian story in each artists lives is just amazing. A wonderful coffee table book, but it's pretty big. Full colour glossy pages.
