Publisher's Description

For centuries, the Bible's dramatic accounts have inspired artists to express the beauty, emphasize the power, and elaborate on the meaning of God's Word. Each elective study in the Through Artists' Eyes series is designed to help people connect classic art to the Bible and then apply the truths discovered to their own lives.

In God's Word in Stone you'll experience the artistry of six masterpieces of sculpture while discovering and discussing the scriptural inspiration behind each one. You'll explore the lives of Moses, Habakkuk, Haggai, Mary Magdalene, Paul the apostle, and the apostles. Each of the six sessions includes:

• Selecting the Stone—an introductory, group-building activity that gives members an opportunity to share opinions about the main theme of study
• Roughing out the Image—an examination of the work, life, and thoughts of the artist
• Polishing the Art—a Bible study that places the work of the artist within biblical context
• Displaying the Masterpiece—discussion questions that encourage group members to apply the principles of the study to daily life

Additionally, each study features margin notes, tips for projecting the art, definitions of art terms, and suggested supplemental resources for further exploration.
