Katherine Paterson - John Paterson - Images ​of God
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.
