Pairing reproductions of 18 masterworks by Rembrandt van Rijn with original poems reflecting on them, this lovely book encourages readers to ponder the artistic and spiritual themes behind some of his most dramatic paintings. Marilyn Chandler McEntyre illuminates how Rembrandt captured the poignancy and power of familiar Bible stories, rendering a particular moment of decision, confrontation, or awakening, in subjects like Abraham's sacrifice of Isaac, Moses's destruction of the tablets, David's reconciliation with Absalom, and Jesus's encounters with the woman at the well and with the disciples at Emmaus.
