Product 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 on Canvas you'll experience the artistry of six classic paintings while discovering and discussing the scriptural inspiration behind each one. You'll explore the themes of hope, belief, purpose, God's will, strength, and the future. Each of the six sessions includes:

  • Preparing the Canvas-an introductory, group-building activity that gives members an opportunity to share opinions about the main theme of study
  • Painting the Big Picture-an examination of the work, life, and thoughts of the artist
  • Framing the Art-a Bible study that places the work of the artist within biblical context
  • Adding It to the Gallery-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.'
