Organized by significant biblical events, beginning with the creation in Genesis and ending with John the Evangelist's vision of heaven on earth in Revelations; each work of art is accompanied by the biblical passage it illustrates, along with a commentary exploring its form and meaning. Includes seldom-seen gems, as well as favorites from Michelangelo to Rembrandt. Here are angels as assistants, messengers, punishers, soldiers, rebels, and Saviors, assembled for the delight of both art lovers and believers.
