A Blossom in the Desert: Faith in the Art and Writings of Lilias Trotter

Product Description

In 1888, Lilias Trotter, daughter of a distinguished Victorian family, left her comfortable upper-class lifestyle in London to venture into the Arab world of Algeria and Northern Africa, where she spent the rest of her life living out the life and light and love of Jesus Christ to those around her. Lilias viewed the world with "heartsight as deep as eyesight," and her artistic talent took both visual and verbal form as she documented in words and sketches the seasons of her forty years in Algeria. Featuring color reproductions from Lilias' sketchbooks on nearly every page, and a presentation page for gift giving, A Blossom in the Desert is a book worth giving to those with an interest in missions, art history, or to any seeking inspiration and encouragement. Paperback.

Publisher's Description

Lilias Trotter believed that God had two textbooks—Scripture and creation—and she studied both. Day by day for decades, Lilias recorded in words and watercolor paintings her observations of God through nature and people. A Blossom in the Desert showcases exquisite art and inspirational writings from her many devotional books, journals, and letters. Her humble insights and reflective watercolors, combined with words from Scripture, make this softcover book a keepsake you’ll treasure.
