Reviews

US Kirkus Review » Originally published a few years ago, this attractive and most useful book is now offered in a popular edition, complete and unabridged. The text is written by the Rev. George Ferguson, rector of St. Philip's Church, Tucson, Arizona. It provides a clear and simple explanation of the many signs and symbols to be found in Christian art, and is profusely illustrated with sixteen full color paintings by outstanding Renaissance artists, as well as 96 pages of black and white plates. These in large part are reproduced from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation. A complete index adds to the usefulness of the book, which should find its way into every clergyman's library as well as those who take a serious interest in the symbols which enrich and adorn the Christian faith. Many a child's question will find the answer here. (Kirkus Reviews)
