From the majesty of Genesis to the mystery of Revelation, the Bible contains some of the world's most powerful stories and sublime wisdom. It is also the inspiration for some of the greatest pictures ever painted. Adam and Even expelled from Paradise, Jacob wrestling with the angel, God appearing to Moses in the burning bush, Samson betrayed by Delilah, David slaying Goliath, the beauty of Bathsheba, the wisdom of Solomon; these are among the dramatic episodes and memorable characters from the Old Testament, portrayed here by artists such as Masaccio, Raphael, Rubens, Degas, and Rembrandt. Then, in the New Testament, the figure of Jesus takes center stage, with his compelling parables and miracles depicted by artists such as Poussin, Delacroix, and van Gogh, and with major events in his ministry from the Nativity to the Resurrection painted by Botticelli, Piero, Duccio, Leonardo, Giotto, Titian, and Craigie Atchison. Commenting on these and many other works, Sister Wendy takes you on a journey into the heart of the Bible and of biblical art, making this a book you will want to turn to again and again.
