Item description for In the Midst of Chaos, Peace by Sister Wendy Beckett, Dan Paulos & Daniel T. Paulos...

In response to Pope John Paul's recent letter to artists to promote the Catholic faith through "artistic evangelization", three well-known names in the field of sacred art have collaborated to produce this beautiful art book filled with visual and spiritual meditations. Sister Wendy Beckett, famed BBC and PBS art critic, presents her always unique meditations for each of the 54 wonderful silhouettes by the two foremost Catholic paper-cutting artists, Dan Paulos and the late Sister Mary Jean Dorcy. The result is what Sister Wendy calls "an epiphany", a book that reveals the God of mercy, love and peace through deeply inspired art and reflections. A perfect Christmas gift

Thus, this book and its title, In the Midst of Chaos, Peace, perfectly sum up the three collaborator's intent: to offer people in our modern, fast-paced and hectic world, spiritual and artistic meditations that take only a minute to ponder but can produce profound and lasting peace of soul.

Reviews - What do customers think about In the Midst of Chaos, Peace?

An excellent book to stir a world-weary soul!  Nov 16, 1999
"In The Midst Of Chaos, Peace," is a reminder of the gentle, yet strong spirit of an ever-present God, who still lives and breathes beneath a world in turmoil and values gone haywire! It is a beautiful blending of three enormous talents that fit together well, to create a masterpiece of lyric and "visual music," that will stir the soul at every reading! One wonders how any human could create such beauty with paper, and sissors, and endless patience and faith. And Sr. Wendy's words fit perfectly, making this an unforgettable book for all ages!
A revelation ....  Oct 13, 1999
Dan Paulos creates silhouettes of peace. Discreetly, they whisper a message of pure giving, secret gardens of joy, and radiant blessings. Indeed, where art becomes an exercise in prayer, only there is truly sacred art. The humble papercutting artist of Albuquerque and friend of the late Sister Mary Jean Dorcy gives beauty an old-new name, that of selflessness, source of peace.
This is a peaceful work.  Oct 13, 1999
CHAOS exists only in the title of this book. It is childlike in it simplicity and deeply devout. May it bring peace.
Only a blessing!  Oct 13, 1999
The silhouette has always held an enigmatic place in the history of art. This collection of papercuts beautifully displays that mystery, and Sister Wendy Beckett's unique commentary adds the necessary strength of the Gospel.
This book is a must.  Oct 13, 1999
This work pleasures the eye, warms the heart and elevates the soul. It is a successful blend of three talents that will never fail to delight and inspire.
