Inspiring and bold! An artist and a theologian bridge continents, cultures and disciplines as they explore 23 well-known words of the Christian faith - grace, love, mercy, eternity, righteousness, reconciliation, wrath, salvation, death . . .
Peterson’s seasoned, spiritual reflections illuminate Kaai’s resplendent abstract paintings.
Eugene Peterson explains: “Word and image really cannot be separated, even though we try it often enough. Word without image easily evaporates into an abstraction; image without word can degenerate into an idol. Word and image need each other... Especialy when a word goes flat through repetition and familiarity, image brings the imagination into play and sharpens our awareness of and participation in the word and the Word-made-flesh.”
Visual interpretations of well-known Bible concepts. In a contemporary idiom. Short devotions with mature, distilled insight. Exploring metaphors.
