The Saint John's Bible: Pentateuch by Donald Jackson. Illustrated; 158 pages; hardcover. Liturgical Press, 2006.
Using tools and materials employed by scribes for thousands of years, Donald Jackson and an international team of artists and scholars embarked on a monumental seven-year journey: to create the first handwritten and illuminated Bible commissioned since the invention of the printing press. Combining the most widely used English translation of the Bible with original artwork that reflects cultures from around the world, The Saint John's Bible is an inspiring undertaking that speaks to the heart of many religious traditions. The Saint John's Bible will be issued in seven volumes corresonding to the original work: Pentateuch, Historical Books, Wisdom Literature, Psalms, Prophets, Gospels and Acts and Letters and Revelation.
