Beautiful, provocative religious (Christian) art with thoughtful essays. Enjoyed this very much.

Love Janet McKenzies art and this is a great little compilation. Have been craving some more weighty feminist reflections and this gave me some great pondering material. Particularly enjoyed Mary E Haddad's reflections on the 'Annunciation'. Am sure I will come back to this book for reference and inspiration at different times and seasons. Not something you read from start to finish in one setting. A reading per day/week could be a good little quiet time inspiration.

Good time to read/look at this. I saw lots of Madonna and Child paintings in DC. It was kind of on my mind.
And I like the ones of Saints too as well as the stories. But one of my favorite books as a kid was "Sixty Saints for Girls".
