Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Reviewed with Neil Morris' The Life of Jesus. Gr. 6-9. From the Art Revelations series come these volumes that intertwine religion and art. The oversize format uses great works of art to tell the life stories of two towering religious figures from the Old and New Testaments. Moses offers artwork by Botticelli, Poussin, and Michelangelo, among others, to highlight the major events in the law-giver's life. Each spread takes a specific incident, such as Moses' receiving the Ten Commandments, and illustrates it with a painting keyed to information about the individuals and actions depicted in the work. Other art, including hieroglyphics and artifacts, helps bring the period to life. An identical format is used in Jesus. As with many large-format books that mingle text, sidebars, and artwork, the design of both volumes is sometimes choppy, but the flow is generally good, and the artwork is crisply reproduced. These books will be best used with the help of an adult who can provide additional context. Brief biographies of the artists are appended. --Ilene Cooper Copyright 2003 Booklist"
