Contemplative Vision is a guide that deeply engages the mind and heart and imagination. It takes us into the transforming presence of the God who unveils himself in Scripture as seen through the eyes and hands of gifted artists. Do read-and gaze-and see for yourself!" (Leighton Ford, president, Leighton Ford Ministries, and author of The Attentive Life). Where there is no vision people perish. Benner has shaped an important resource for Christians, especially those interested in contemplative living.

In each chapter you'll encounter a passage of Scripture and a corresponding piece of art to lead you in a new experience of prayer in God's presence.

Dr. Kuchan weaves together practical explanations of this new practice, along with stories of people who have used it to overcome shame and anger as they discover divine acceptance and love. Contemplative Vision : A Guide to Christian Art and Prayer by Juliet Benner (2011, Paperback).

While working as a docent in an art gallery, Juliet Benner began showing people how to meditate on Christian art treasures that are rooted in a passage of Scripture. She taught a way of encountering the Word behind both the words of Scripture and the artist's meditation on Scripture. This became a way of seeing art as an aid to contemplative prayer. This process resulted in her much-beloved "O Taste and See" columns that appeared in the spiritual formation journal Conversations, now expanded into this book. In each chapter you'll encounter a passage of Scripture and a corresponding piece of art. You'll be guided into deeper levels of meaning and reflection through the text and the questions at the end of each chapter. In the process you'll find yourself entering into a new experience of prayer and meditation in God's presence.

A good book for studying various aspects of Christian Art.
mr.Mine
Excellent book which I used for a contemplative yoga retreat. Books were also available for purchase and many purchased them. Great way to look at individual works through a faith-based lens!
Molotok
This book is a wonderful supplement that integrates art into how one reads the Bible. It is what is called "Visio Divina" and the paintings are based on certain scripture passages that one can then meditate upon. It brings an added, rich dimension, to one's devotional time.

the paintings she has chosen are truly enlightening. This is a keeper.
