I visited the National Gallery a couple of years ago to view the religious paintings there. The size of some is awesome and I was moved at the time to buy some of the postcards in their shop to bring home. I spent more on cards that day than this book cost and everyone of my selection and more are here with Nicholas Holtam's comments and devotionals as well. Although a book of this size cannot reflect the sheer scale or detail of the real works, I was pleased to hear the book reviewed on BBC radio when Nicholas Holtam was being interviewed on 'Midweek.' Lucky man to have had a job so close to NatGall to see these works on a daily basis. If you can't go, get this book; if you can, get this book and set the full day aside to read the scriptures and writings of a man after my own heart. 5 stars had it been bigger format. Enjoy!
