The Art of Lent: A Painting A Day From Ash Wednesday To Easter (Paperback)Sister Wendy Beckett (author)
Join Sister Wendy on a journey through Lent, and discover the timeless wisdom to be found in some of the world's greatest paintings.
Illustrated in full colour with over forty famous and lesser-known masterpieces of Western art, this beautiful book will lead you into a deeply prayerful response to all that these paintings convey to the discerning eye.
From the Hokusai's Great Wave to Rembrandt's The Return of the Prodigal Son, these reflections draw from the emotions and spiritual truths behind the painting to give you lessons that will stay with you a lifetime.
Each of the days is based around a different theme. From joy to tranquility to courage to sacrifice - the messages from The Art of Lent are short meditations that are designed to leave you with questions of your own to think about, rather than a compendium of conceptions to espouse in certain occasions.
'For those who want to appreciate the spirituality behind some of the world’s greatest works of art, this book will be hugely inspiring - not only during Lent but at any time of the year.'
Dr Janina Ramirez, art historian and broadcaster
