In The Saint John's Bible, some of the world's top calligraphers, working in a tradition all but replaced by the printing press centuries ago, offer one of the most important sacred art achievements of our time. The Art of The Saint John's Bible: A Reader's Guide brings text and illumination together for reflection. This guide opens up the significance of elements in the illuminations, points out recurring visual motifs that connect the stories within and across the volumes, and offers insight into the thought processes and artistic vision behind the planning and execution of the images.

This third volume of the series covers the final published volumes of The Saint John's Bible: Historical Books and Letters and Revelation. It offers an invitation to experience more deeply the illuminations that accompany some of the most influential texts in all the Scriptures

MEDIA REVIEWS
Sink has outdone herself! If you want to probe the richness of The Saint John's Bible, you will find this book a real treasure.Irene Nowell, OSB, Old Testament Editor, The Little Rock Catholic Study Bible
Susan Sink offers her books as a starting place for a deeper experience of the images and text of The Saint John's Bible. I believe she has eminently succeeded. She helps us to ask questions of ourselves and gives us some tools to find our own way without dictating ready-made answers. Finally she bids us God speed on our journey through the Scriptures.Donald Jackson, Artistic Director of The Saint John's Bible
. . . a treasure. It is beautiful, inspiring and practical.The Furrow
