about this item

The strong God of Exodus. The ancient poetry of the Psalms, and the eternal teachings of Proverbs. Matthew, Mark, Luke, and the mystical beauty of John. The new heaven and earth of Revelation.    Bible verses—an enduring source of guidance, peace, and rejuvenation—are here given a very special treatment in colorful letterpress illustrations that bring each phrase to life in a fresh and meaningful way. The verses are drawn from seven translations (including the New International Version, The New Revised Standard Version, and The King James Bible) and arranged in order, beginning with Genesis 1:1. These selections include 100 of the most distinctly meaningful passages of the Old and New Testament, made even more powerful through the transformative lens of art.      Like a contemporary update on medieval illuminated manuscripts, the book combines the timeless words of the Bible with timely artwork—in this case, hand-lettering and illustration in a variety of beautiful styles and remarkable aesthetics from 25 contemporary artists. It’s a new and vibrant way to experience the living word.

A book for every believer. A book of comfort. A book of wisdom. A book to lift the spirits. A book to put on a night table or to keep always in that special place where one sits, reads, meditates, prays. A book to give to loved ones for any occasion.

I LOVE this book! Its nice to flip through the pages and look at the art while you read the scriptures. I plan to frame some of the pages too (the pages aren't perforated or anything though).
