Spiritual images transform the world all around us, in signs and symbols that are familiar to us from ancient times. The Bible is filled with word pictures that illuminate the various ways God defines the eternal message and meaning.
From common symbols of rock and light to the parable of the prodigal son and the story of Jacob and Esau, the intricate brocade of Bible text is interwoven with transfiguring images. These symbols and stories help us to know more about God – who God is and what God means to teach us – within the everyday situations of our own lives.
John and Katherine Paterson have conceived a book that is at once accessible and wise. Their astute, elegant text, coupled with Alexander Koshkin’s radiant paintings, will appeal to readers of all ages.

Carl Barks - Walt Disney's Donald Duck - Lost in the Andes
The first in a historic series of books collecting the comic book stories of “The Good Duck Artist.” Carl Barks’ Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge comics are considered among the greatest artistic and storytelling achievements in the history of the medium. After serving a stint at the Walt Disney studios as an in-betweener and a gag-man, Barks began drawing the comic book adventures of Donald Duck in 1942. He quickly mastered every aspect of cartooning and over the next nearly 30 years created some of the most memorable comics ever drawn — as well as some of the most memorable characters: Barks introduced Uncle Scrooge, the charmed and insufferable Gladstone Gander, the daffy inventor Gyro Gearloose, the bumbling and heedless Beagle Boys, the Junior Woodchucks, and many others.
