For millennia, the Bible has led artists to create enduring masterpieces, and this book presents 60 of them in color, among them Michelangelo's The Creation of Adam, Gustave Doré's Jacob Wrestling with the Angel, Pieter Breughel's The Tower of Babel, William Blake's Angel of the Revelation, and Salvador Dalí's ethereal Christ of St. John of the Cross. Accompanied by summaries of the biblical texts and artist bios, here too are works by Leonardo da Vinci, Hildegard of Bingen, Sandro Botticelli, Peter Paul Rubens, Hieronymus Bosch, Johannes Vermeer, and Vincent van Gogh.
