Item description for The Art of The Saint John's Bible: A Readers Guide to Wisdom Books and Prophets (Volume 2) by Susan Sink...

Overview
In the first of a planned two-volume set, this edition brings text and illumination together for reflection. This guide further opens up the significance of elements in the illuminations, and points out recurring visual motifs that connect the stories within and across the volumes.

Publishers Description

"The Saint John's Bible" provides an opportunity for people to experience the Scriptures in a new 'but at the same time ancient 'way. Here are illuminations that bring the words of the Bible alive for a contemporary audience. Some of the world's top calligraphers, working in a tradition al but replaced by the printing press centuries ago, invite us into a rich and varied creation. This second volume of "The Art of The Saint John's Bible: A Reader's Guide" takes up two great collections of biblical literature '"Wisdom Books "and"Prophets."

The illuminations in "Wisdom Books" and "Prophets" draw on motifs from eelier illuminations and expand the visual vocabulary to strike at what is unique and important to these books. In "Wisdom Books" we find a number of well-known and beloved aphorisms, or words of wisdom." Here calligraphic text treatments take center stage. However, these books also portray the divine in the female figure of Wisdom, presented visually in several large-scale illuminations. The prophets ' messages are often dark and strange, reflecting the grief of exile but also hope. The illuminations throughout these pages reflect Visions of man's inhumanity, but they also burst with the rainbows of God's promise and glory. Lavishing equal attention on the biblical passages and the artistic Vision of "The Saint John's Bible, " this guide is offered to enhance your experience and reflection.

"Susan Sink is a poet and writer, and is communications director at Saint Benedict's Monastery in St. Joseph, Minnesota. She is also an oblate of Saint John's Abbey, the author of a book of poems, "The Way of al the Earth, " and the first book in this series.""
