Item description for Through The Eyes Of The Saints: A Pilgrimage Through History by David Brown...
In this sequel to David Brown's book Signs of Grace (Continuum 1995), the author turns his attention to the saints and images of sanctity, as portrayed in art. Based on a series of highly acclaimed sermons given in Durham Cathedral, David Brown examines the artist's view of sanctity and how this enlarges our own view of the humanity and holiness of those called to be saints throughout the ages. As a result of this, the reader is led to a new understanding of the veneration of the saints and the possibilities of the call to holiness in the turbulent and secular modern world.

Reviews - What do customers think about Through The Eyes Of The Saints: A Pilgrimage Through History?
A splendid book Apr 18, 2005
David Brown is one of the outstanding theologians of the Church of England, and he produces work that is consistently thought-provoking, judicious, and well written. This book, on an excellent subject, is no exception. He clearly shows why the saints are worth thinking about today, and he sets their stories within the larger history of the Church. Along the way, he makes comments that are useful to all of us in considering our own lives in the light of the saints' examples (both good and bad examples). This is a very fine, well-crafted book. I recommend it heartily.
