Item description for Life of Jesus (Art Revelations) by Neil Morris...
Some of the world's greatest paintings depict scenes from the life of Jesus, including the Annunciation, the Nativity, the Baptism, the Sermon on the Mount, the Last Supper, the Trail, the Crucifixion, the Resurrection and the Ascension.
In addition to the book's main large paintings, magnificently reproduced, smaller paintings are used as commentary. Moreover, symbolic elements, such as the lily, the dove and the open book in the Annunciation are explained, and each of the people represented is identified through a graphic reduction of the main painting. The New Testament texts accompanying each image adumbrate and enhance each visual scene, deepening the reader's understanding of the painting.
A clear, informative and visually pleasurable introduction to Jesus' life as rendered by some of the greatest painters of all time.

Reviews - What do customers think about Life of Jesus (Art Revelations)?
Great Book of Religious Art! Apr 3, 2005
I used to teach at a Catholic school so I could have shared this book, but in public school, I probably wouldn't be allowed to. Too bad, religion has always been a major theme in art and if art is to be truly studied and revered, Renissance art shouldn't be ignored. The paintings of this book include works by Raphael, da Vinci and others. Of course, the naked pictures would shock too, when will we come to some sort of appreciation so that art can be revered and not be hidden away?
