Prophets is the fourth of seven full-color reproduction books of The Saint John's Bible,featuring some of the most beautiful passages in all of Sacred Scripture. The ancient prophets of Israel suffered and celebrated with the people they both admonished and praised. They provided words of consolation during times of oppression and kept the flame of hope alive during the darkest periods of Israelite and Jewish history. Christians honor the prophets as those who foretold the coming of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, as is evidenced by the many references to the prophets in the New Testament. The prophetic message is as relevant today as it was in ancient Israel. The prophets continue to call us to respond to God's love and offer their unvarnished judgment on our behavior. Jackson's images amplify the prophetic word, keeping the flame of hope alive today.

Prophets includes artistic depictions from Isaiah, Ezekiel, Jeremiah, Micah, Amos, Daniel, and Zechariah. Major images are Isaiah's Vision of the New Temple, Suffering Servant, Ezekiel's Cal, Valley of the Dry Bones, Daniel's Son of Man, Amos ' Plea for Social Justice, and Zechariah's Messianic Predictions. In addition, famous passages such as Isaiah 2:4 He shall judge between the nations, and shall arbitrate for many peoples; they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more receive special calligraphic and artistic treatment.

Donald Jackson is one of the world's leading calligraphers and the artistic director and illuminator of The Saint John's Bible. He is a Senior Illuminator to the Queen of England's Crown Office and is an elected Fellow and past Chairman of the prestigious Society of Scribes and Illuminators. His 30-year retrospective exhibition, Painting with Words, premiered at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in August, 1988 and traveled to 13 museums and galleries.

These are great quality and perfect for Lexio Divina, my children love reading this bible. Pages are great thick quality. This bible is very large.

The original St. John's Bible, of which there is only one copy because it was handwritten, has much larger pages than the replica that is sold in seven volumes. The replica is, however, amazing! This is the first Bible in more than 500 years to be both hand written and illuminated by hand. It was created with the ancient methods and style, but with the modern NRSV translation of the Bible and modern art in the illuminations. The complete set was purchased for my church. We display the volume for a particular Sunday in the narthex, and then read from it in the worship service. I highly recommend it!

Wonderfully packaged, absolutely beautiful...a real work of art and history. A beautiful family keepsake! Wishing you blessings of joy and peace!

This is an excellent addition to the previous volumes of the St. John's Bible that have come out. I can't wait for the last three! As with the other volumes, the calligraphy is a bit hard to read, but it is being true to the art form. Grogeous illuminations. I recommend that the collector also purchase "The Art of the Saint John's Bible" by Susan Sink or a similar volume for a complete explanation of the illuminations.

I bought this as a gift for an ordination and it was perfect. Not as many illuminations (illustrations) as some of the other volumes of the St. John's Bible, but still stunning.

The new calligraphy script developed by Donald Jackson is easier to read than the one used in the Book Of Kells.

These books are spectacular. I am in love with the idea of using medeival techniques to make a book of this size and importance. This one is beautiful. I've never read the prophets before but now I am.
I returned this and another. Don't get the pount if so much text. Will anyone use these volumes as a reading copy? Too unwieldy. IMO should be volume(s) of plates of the illuminations.
