(No reviews yet) Write a Review

'For those who want to appreciate the spirituality behind some of the world's greatest works of art, this book will be hugely inspiring - not only during Lent but at any time of the year.' - Janina Ramirez

Brimming with Sister Wendy's irrepressible wisdom and enthusiasm, this little book explores the spiritual riches to be found in some of the world's greatest paintings of the Passion and Resurrection of Jesus. Illustrated in full colour with thirty famous and lesser-known masterpieces of Western art, here is a chance to hear again the voice of Sister Wendy as she gently leads you into a deeper appreciation of all that these paintings convey to the discerning eye.

'Sister Wendy's deep and insightful commentaries are utterly unique.' - Delia Smith

AUTHOR: Sister Wendy (1930-2018) was a Carmelite nun, consecrated virgin and art historian who became world famous in the 1990s when she presented a series of BBC documentaries on the history of painting. She was the author of over thirty books, including the internationally bestselling The Story of Painting (Dorling Kindersley, 1997). Her most recent books include Sister Wendy's Bible Treasury (SPCK, 2012), The Art of Lent (SPCK, 2017) and Sister Wendy's 100 Best-loved Paintings (SPCK, 2019).
