    DISCLAIMER: I received an Advance Reader's Copy of the book The Art of Faith by Judith Couchman from Paraclete Press in exchange for a publicized review of the book.

    This book is a tremendous resource, especially for those of us who are not familiar with all of the various artistic elements used in certain Christian traditions. It is most likely a good academic resource, as it goes into lengthy detail in explaining the various subtleties about design, colors, style, material, symbolism, and the relevance to the Christian faith. It bridges the gap between artwork or symbols we have seen to understanding why and when they are used. Couchman has done a nice job of making the explanations and definitions concise. Though the book is just over 300 pages in paperback, it could easily have been much lengthier. The book does not show pictures of the various artworks, but uses minimal drawings instead. This is a book that would be good on a pastor's or priest's or bishop's shelf as a resource to teach their congregation about why things are done as they are. It would also be very useful for any minister or congregation that would like to become more liturgical and follow the lectionary schedules. Art is sometimes overlooked in various congregations, and I think this book could help diminish that.
