'This is an excellent aid to reflection on the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ.' www.christianbookshops.org.uk 'It is a very remarkable, interesting and stimulating book. The pictures are well produced and Harries goes to the heart of the matter, unpicking and articulating a range of questions and reflections on the images. The book spans the centuries and is a remarkable collection of images which explore the context and theologies that led to such differing depictions of the Passion.' Contact '... the quality of production of the book is very high and the illustrations are beautifully done, and it would provide a very helpful support for anyone whose primary interest is in the contemplation of the images.' Art & Christianity 'The Passion in Art proves the artistic importance of the Paschal Mystery, from second-century inscriptions in the catacombs to the work of Nicholas Mynheer... This book serves as a useful introduction to the subject and is particularly valuable in sketching the broad developments of the theme and placing each depiction in its cultural and theological context.' The Art Book 'This beautiful book by the highly respected and scholarly bishop of Oxford shows clearly how sacred art functions as a theological locus, as a place of divine revelation for those who have eyes to see.'

This is a book I find myself returning to in order to grasp the twists and turns of an artistic and spiritual evolution in the manner of depiction of christian images of Christ's Passion and the many encouraging and imaginative pictures of Christ's Resurrection appearances.
