The diverse artwork that adorns the magnificent pages of The Saint John's Bible shares a unified purpose - to inpsire our hearts and to ignite our imaginations. A distinct form of these breathtaking visuals, the text treatment, focuses specifically on honoring some of the most cherished prayers and wisdom texts of the Bible. These text treatments feature unique calligraphy and colorful embellishments that bring to life the passages they reveal. A collection of these glorious portrayals of our faith can now be found in the new book, Praying the Word: Illuminated Prayers and Wisdom from The Saint John's Bible. In the tradition of lectio divina (reflecting on the Scriptures), Praying the Word is an instrumental guide for personal prayer and a companion for meditation. Brief descriptions and passage references accompany each full color text treatment and an index of prayer occasions and artist attributions are also included. Gilt-edged pages, the beautiful hardcover design, and a sewn-in ribbon bookmark make a fitting volume for these beloved prayers and wisdom texts. This exquisite treasury embodies the significance of prayer life, and makes a wonderful gift at confirmations, weddings, and other special occasions in the lives of family and friends.
