Can an artist make the word of God live on a page? Donald Jackson's "Genesis," is the opening frontispiece in the first handwritten and illuminated Bible in 500 years. Commissioned by the monks at Saint John's Abbey in Minnesota, "Genesis" is one of over two dozen works on exhibit this month at Indiana Interchurch Center in Indianapolis. In this world where some are inspired by their God to acts of destruction, Jackson was inspired to an act of creation. That is why "Genesis" (above) by Donald Jackson is my NEWS OF WEEK.
