    1 starNo starNo starNo starNo star    Heavy going

    This book was very drab, with an aged feel to the pages, and not what I expected at all. Most of the paintings are located in the States. Not very good for research as all paintings are in black and white. Its very much aimed at theology rather than art history.

    1 star1 starNo starNo starNo star    Very dry indeed

    I found this book quite uninteresting.Various symbols are traced back to their biblical roots, as are assorted biblical stories.None of these, however, are linked to illustrations which would help the reader to interpret pictures.
    All illustrations are in black and white ( in 2003 !!) and all the paintings are in American galleries, with scant reference to anything to be found in Europe.
    Probably suited to a devout fundamentalist readership, but the art is definitely in second place.Buy the second hand copy from Amazon and save the difference to buy the Oxford companion to Christian Art and see the difference!
