Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0829415610, Hardcover)

For two thousand years, Jesus Christ's life and teachings have inspired some of the most sublime and compelling art the world has known. Philip Law's elegant anthology traces the life of Christ in words and art. This classical collection presents more than forty glorious paintings by world-famous artists, including Raphael, Bellini, Rembrandt, Titian, and Velazquez. Each masterpiece is paired with an extract from a Gospel narrative and a meditation drawn from a great writer, such as Tennyson, Blake, Merton, Nouwen, or Teresa of Avila. The result is a unique combination of paintings, poetry, and prose that will delight the eyes and touch the heart for years to come.
