The Holy Gospels of St. Luke and St. John from the Sacred Art Series is now the most beautiful and easiest way to read the Gospels!
It is gorgeously bound with a black leatherette cover, gold embossed lettering, gilt pages, a sewn binding, and a ribbon. The interior is equally stunning. More than 100 of the finest images of sacred art appear alongside the complete text of the Gospels presented in a large font in a story-by-story format. The art comes from some of the greatest artists of Christendom, including Fra Angelico, Caravaggio, Duccio, Michelangelo, Titian, Raphael, Murillo, and Giotto.
This book makes an exquisite gift for both children and adults. Through it, children can be introduced to the daily reading of the scriptures in a format that is accessible to them. Adults will also love the large print and beautiful images--whether they have been reading the Gospels for years or are rediscovering them.
The Holy Gospels is suitable for ages 7 and up. It makes an excellent First Communion or Confirmation Gift. It also makes a great birthday, feast day, or Christmas gift for your child, niece, nephew, godchild, or grandchild. It is also excellent for adults for birthdays, Fathers' Day, or Mothers' Day.
The translation is based on the Challoner Revision of the Douay-Rheims--an excellent Catholic translation--but has been updated to ease readability by removing most thee's, thy's, thou's, and -eth endings. The substance of the text remains that of Douay-Rheims.
