Saint John's Bible illuminates stories of forgiveness

SAINT JOHN'S BIBLE
"Luke Anthology" by Donald Jackson
The "Luke Anthology" was created by artist: Donald Jackson, with contributions by Aidan Hart and Sally Mae Joseph as part of The Saint John's Bible. It is one of the books from the first completely handwritten and illuminated Bible to have been commissioned in 500 years. The image of the Twin Towers, subtle but lit with brilliant gold, is in the heart of “Luke Anthology”. This illumination draws together several stories from the Gospel–the prodigal son, the good samaritan, and others–all focused on a simple theme: forgiveness. [Purchase]
