5.0 out of 5 stars For the Religiously Experienced 9 Feb 2012
By Meow Tomcat - Published on Amazon.com
The best selling scholar Roland H. Bainton wrote this book for "persons religiously experienced" by looking at art that depicts episodes in the life of Christ. These are, of course, Christmas, Good Friday & Easter, the Nativity, the Passion & the Resurrection. The text is written with irenic deep faith and guides the reader with commentary and discussion. Fortunately the author gives his opinions for and against, otherwise the book would remain a picture book. The art is from the catacombs of Rome to present day. Beautiful art with 250 illustrations, and I only wish the pictures were in color and larger. But I suppose the price would then have skyrocketed. Still a beautiful book. The chapters or subjects are:

(1) Nativity
(2) Shepherds
(3) Wise men
(4) Slaughter of the innocents
(5) Flight into Egypt
(6) Boyhood at Nazareth
(7) Baptism
(8) Miracles
(9) Parables
(10) Triumphal entry
(11) Anointing at Bethany
(12) Cleansing of the Temple
(13) Washing the disciples's feet
(14) Last Supper
(15) Gethsemane
(16) Arrest
(17) Peter's denial
(18) Trials
(19) Crucifixion
(20) Deposition from the cross & Pieta
(21) Ressurrection
(22) Christ beyond history
(23) Vine
(24) Lamb
(25) Bridgegroom
(26) Second Person of the Trinity
(27) Pantocrator
(28) Judge
