Description - Art and Prayer by Timothy Verdon

Renowned Art Historian Timothy Verdon explores the essential interactions of art and faith in this magnificent, richly illustrated book. Monsignor Verdon explains that images work as tools in believers that teach them how to turn to God. This is the "art of prayer," when faith and prayer become creative responses by which the creatures learn to relate to the Creator.
