Synopses & Reviews
Imaging the Word is an award-winning, full-color, coffee-table-size book filled with some of the world's finest art. Imaginatively blended with the lectionary readings for each week of the year, the contents have been selected for multi-generational and multicultural appeal. Available in either hardcover or paperback, Imaging the Word includes -- along with the stunning artwork -- stories, music, drama, portions of scripts, liturgies, and Bible commentary. Inspirational and stimulating, Imaging offers a unique resource for church groups and for individuals in private study and devotion -- as well as a treasure for home use and for those planning worship.
The passages from the Bible included in Imaging the Word were selected from the Revised Common Lectionary, which is a listing of Bible readings for congregational life, worship, and preaching to be used throughout the church year. For each week and selected festivals, the readings often include passages from the Hebrew Scriptures, including the Psalms, and a portion of a Gospel and one other Christian scripture.
