Item description for The Faces of Christ in Sonora: Los Rostros del Senor en Sonora by James S. Griffith & Francisco Javier Manzo Taylor...

A sumptuous full-color study of devotional art.

Renowned folklorist James S. Griffith teams up with Mexican scholar Francisco Javier Manzo Taylor to celebrate the compelling images of Christ found in churches, chapels, roadside shrines, and personal altars throughout the border state of Sonora, Mexico. Told in warm, informal stories and pictures, The Face of Christ in Sonora captures the essence of these works of powerful popular art. It also examines their place in history, explains how individual pieces came to be made, and reveals how devotional art expresses the inspiration, belief, perseverance, and survival of a culture. "This is more than art," says Manzo Taylor. "It's more than religion. It's people." 32 color photos.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Faces of Christ in Sonora: Los Rostros del Senor en Sonora?

No two regions do it the same.  May 4, 2008
The Life of Christ is celebrated throughout the world, but no two regions do it the same. "The Face of Christ in Sonora" shows that we can even learn about the culture around it in observing the way that they worship, as shown with the turbulent, yet rich history and culture of the Mexican state of Sonora. Written in both English and Spanish for maximum accessibility, "The Face of Christ in Sonora" is highly recommended for both religious and world history community library shelves- and for anyone who wants to see pictures of how another culture celebrates something so familiar to us.
Tha Faces of Christ in Sonora  Apr 5, 2008
This is a book written by two sensitive and knowledgeable individuals who have spent their lives in the Sonoran Desert, deeply immersed in the life of the region.

A gem!
It is a good way to have a snapshot of a region with a shared history at a time when the lives of millions of folks are being shredded in the political struggles that have been generated a long distance from here.
