In this volume John Drury brings his knowledge and experience as both priest and biblical scholar to Christian paintings and presents them to us afresh. He shows how the images in works by artists from Duccio to Velazquez have a universal quality that fills them with passion, stories and meaning, not only for audiences of the past but also for viewers today.
