Sinopsis de THE SAINT JOHNS BIBLE AND ITS TRADITION

In an age of e-books and screens, it may seem antiquated to create a handwritten, illuminated Bible. The Benedictine monks at Saint Johns Abbey and University, however, determined to produce such a Bible for the twenty-first century, a Bible that would use traditional methods and materials while engaging contemporary questions and concerns. In an age that largely overlooks the physical form of books, The Saint Johns Bible foregrounds the importance of a books tactile and visual qualities. This collection considers how The Saint Johns Bible fits within the history of the Bible as a book, and how its haptic qualities may be particularly important in a digital age. This book refocuses our attention on how a stunningly illuminated Bible, such as The Saint Johns Bible, encourages us to meditate more carefully, look more closely, and SEE Scripture in the light of its eternal beauty. A very thoughtful collection of essays makes this a valuable resource. –Sandra Bowden, Artist, Author, and former President of Christians in the Visual Arts Arguably, no other book in the history of the world has inspired more poets, artists, and musicians than the Bible. The reason goes far deeper than the literary qualities of any biblical passage. J. Baker, J. Bilbo, and D. Trains arrangement of essays in The Saint Johns Bible and Its Tradition not only witnesses to the expansive imagination the biblical text engenders, but it also bears testimony to the interpretation of the Bible that the imagination fosters. –Michael Patella, OSB, Saint Johns University, School of Theology and Seminary This intriguing set of essays shows how illumination may happen, not just on the page but also in our minds and lives–but only if we are willing to replace our industrialized habit of processing words with slow practices of dwelling on the words of Scripture, in all their challenging beauty. –Ellen F. Davis, A. R. Kearns Professor of Bible and Practical Theology, Duke Divinity School The authors
