Using inspirational text and images, art expert Sister Wendy Beckett joins forces with Duccio di Buoninsegna (c. 1255-1319), the first of the Great Italian renaissance painters, to offer a privileged meditation into the story of our salvation in Christ. The mysteries of our faith-darkness and light, falsehood and truth, dying and rising, humanity and divinity-were all very vivid and concrete dimensions of daily life in the Middle Ages. Here, Sister Wendy reminds us that the challenges and consequences of these realities are still with us.

Sister Wendy teaches us to meditate with art. This little book is based on one great art piece Duccio's "Maesta," an altarpiece found in Siena, Italy. She takes parts of that painting and provides mediations to coincide with the liturgical year. Great for Sister Wendy collectors!
In her solitude and quietness of soul, Sister Wendy generously shares the fruit of her intellect and spirit to enlighten those of us on the run.
This little book is a visual meditation illustrated with wonderful full colored art. Very readable, not intimidating and very attractive. I used it as a Confirmation gift.
