As with the other volumes of this extraordinary set, this book is an artistic treasure. Both the calligraphers and the illustrators have produced a work beyond compare.
Catholic Library World

Every library, college and university will want to make these lovely volumes available to their patrons and students. Single pages of the volume are suitable for framing. Both the text and the illuminations effectively lift the mind and heart to meditate on the wonder of God’s gracious gift.

This current volume continues to maintain the excellent standards of quill, colour and design techniques lauded in reviews of earlier volumes in the series.
