Publisher's Description

2006 Catholic Press Association Award Winner!

The first of seven full-color, page-by-page reproductions from The Saint John's Bible, Gospels and Acts has more than 25 illuminations, including full-page opening illuminations for each of the four gospels. Some of the prominent illuminations include the Genealogy of Jesus, the Birth of Christ, the Raising of Lazarus, the Crucifixion, Christ Our Light, the Last Supper, the Road to Emmaus, and Pentecost.

The Word of God, hand-illuminated through ancient methods by a contemporary master, brings the reader to an epiphany of the sacred. Those who allow themselves to savor the experience unfolding before them will come to see how Gospels and Acts beautifully marries text and image to serve the Word.

Editorial Reviews

The Saint John’s Bible is intended to assist Jews, Muslims, and Christians in seeing shared commonality in the Bible. . . . In a time when people have so much to learn about different faiths, it is refreshing still to believe that experiencing the material and iconic aspects of the Bible can assist this understanding.

Catholic Biblical Quarterly

Hands down the most exciting of the books presented this year. The Gospels and Acts of the Apostles are presented in a way that literally illuminates each page with the inherent dignity and grace of the scripture. This book is not only ornate in a way the average Bible couldn’t. It is worth the price and will be cherished forever in a persona library or a house of worship.
The Catholic Press Association

The book reproductions are exquisite.
Catholic Library World

Words alone cannot describe the experience of reading and contemplating this hand-written and illuminated Bible.
Catholic Library World

An impressive achievement.
The Catholic Answer

Holding Gospels and Acts in one’s hands invites a spirit of reverence and wonder!
Prairie Messenger

The St. John's Bible is unquestionably art. And in the practice of Jackson and his team members, so is calligraphy.
Journal Star Lincoln, Nebraska

The experience of studying The Saint John's Bible has caused me to consider what happens to us when we welcome sacred words into our hearts.

    I had seen a TV feature report several years ago that showed the St. John's Bible as a work in progress. After a recent discussion with my pastor about possible changes to our Sunday gospel reading, I went online to look for a copy of The Gospels. I found the Christianbook website and this volume.The artwork is beyond words. The format of the pages is larger than I expected. The calligraphy is beautiful. After admiring the Gospel and Acts volume at home, I donated it to our church. We can't wait to begin using it on Sunday mornings.
