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 Through Glass you'll experience the artistry of six stained glass masterpieces while discovering and discussing the scriptural inspiration behind each one. You'll explore the themes of overruling God, resisting leaders, immediate gratification, easy answers, mocking holiness, and comfortable religion. Each of the six sessions includes:

  • Broken Pieces-an introductory, group-building activity that gives members an opportunity to share opinions about the main theme of study
  • The Artist's Touch-an examination of the work, life, and thoughts of the artist
  • The Master's Light-a Bible study that places the work of the artist within biblical context
  • Piecing It Together-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.
