1st in the Mount Tabor Book series!
Renowned art historian Timothy Verdon explores how sacred art can teach us to pray in this stunningly beautiful, richly illustrated book. "Images put before believers can in fact teach them how to turn to God in prayer..." This is the "art of prayer," when faith and prayer become creative responses by which the creatures learn to relate to the Creator. Read this book slowly and let the words and the art inform your meditations. A perfect gift for anyone who loves sacred art.
