Dinah Roe Kendall, biblical text from “The Message” by Eugene Peterson, InterVarsity Press, and Piquant Books
It is encouraging to see a book like this that takes seriously the work of a particular artist, linking it with biblical text and so opening the way for a fresh understanding of the stories. Art is about communication and the publishers are to be commended for taking up this project. It is likely that we will be seeing more of this kind of publication.
The growing appreciation of the arts and a new generation who have lived in a world of images will make this combination a popular option. The work of British artist Dinah Roe Kendall is colourful, down to earth and not without a bit of humour as she retells the biblical stories in her own unique style.
