Item Description...
"A full-color reproduction of the handwritten and illuminated work, The Saint John's Bible, in seven volumes"--Provided by publisher.

Publishers Description

The third of seven full-color reproductions from "The Saint John's Bible," "Pentateuch" is foundational to both Judaism and Christianity. "Pentateuch" features text and illuminations of the first five books of the Old Testament (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy) known as the Torah in Judaism. Prominent illuminations include "Creation, Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve, Jacob's Ladder, Abraham and Sarah," the "Ten Commandments" and the "Death of Moses."

In beautiful handwritten script and elegant design, the Pentateuch contains the cherished stories of faith that are thousands of years old. This book provides an artistic interpretation of humanity's oldest literature 'still recited as living history.

That these stories are significant to Jewish and Christian traditions is not surprising since they reflect the hopes, dreams, fears, and deeds of people living side by side with the earth's oldest civilizations. Over time, these spiritual descendants of Abraham and Sarah introduced God to al the inhabitants of the Middle East and beyond. Their message was simple. God and his creation are good; evil enters when prideful humans go their own way. Nonetheless, God continues to love unconditionally.

"Donald Jackson is one of the world's leading calligraphers and the artistic director and illuminator of "The Saint John's Bible." He is a Senior Illuminator to the Queen of England's Crown Office and is an elected Fellow and past Chairman of the prestigious Society of Scribes and Illuminators. His 30-year retrospective exhibition, "Painting with Words," premiered at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in August,1988 and traveled to 13 museums and galleries."

"The launch of a national museum tour of the "The Saint John's Bible" began at The Minneapolis Institute of Arts in Minneapolis, Minnesota in April 2005 where record crowds greeted the inaugural exhibit during its three-month run. "The Saint John's Bible" will continue its national exhibition tour that includes museums and galleries from throughout the United States and Europe.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Saint John's Bible, Vol. 1: Pentateuch   Dec 24, 2007
One of the most outstanding book projects in our time is The Saint John's Bible. The background of how this book came into being and the detailed research that went into the creation of this Bible is fascinating. The text is only superceded by the illustrations.
Should you have an opportunity to see the traveling exhibit of this remarkable book, do so.
The bible is broken into several books. These are scaled down models of the original -- although they are still larger than most books that enable the reader to enjoy the wonderful illustrations and careful handwritten original Bible.
The books have been issued over a course of time and can be purchased individually.
St. John's Bible Pentateuch  Feb 15, 2007
The book is beautiful. I purchased two books. One had a torn cover. When I informed the seller, the book was immediately replaced free of charge. I appreciate the good customer service as well as the beautiful book.
As much a work of art as it is a religious text  Sep 3, 2006
Exquisitely handwritten and illuminated by Donald Jackson, Pentateuch: The Saint John's Bible is as much a work of art as it is a religious text. Commissioned by Saint John's Abbey and University as an expression of the Benedictine monks' daily focus on scripture and devotion to books, art, and religious high culture, Pentateuch presents sacred text in flowing English calligraphy, Hebrew book headings, and colorful marks studding the passages. The care put into each line is breathtaking. In oversized hardcover format, Pentateuch uses the sheer scope of its page to display the columns of perfectly penned scripture in vivid detail.
