To order this new book,

"The Star" acrylic on canvas, 24 x 18. This is the first picture in the book. Rather than illustrate the miracle of the birth of Christ with a typical manger scene, I chose to use the star.
The story of the star which is said to have led the wise men from the East to the Christ child is recorded in just twelve verses in the gospel of Matthew.
The star objectifies the idea that the coming of Christ truly was a cosmic event. The star is an emblem heralding the arrival of a new understanding.

This book is an artistic masterpiece, exploring the major points of the New Testament of the Christian Bible while presenting a bold, progressive interpretation of the life and teachings of the Christ. Each illustration is accompanied by the related Bible verses and a short commentary by the artist. This extraordinary book is great for an exciting Bible study.

"The Beatitudes" acrylic on canvas, 24 x 18. This is the sixth picture in the book. The verses which are called the Beatitudes are found in the fifth chapter of the gospel of Matthew, the first part of the Sermon on the Mount. 
These are beautiful verses and a prescription for living a righteous life. The verses, as I have rephrased them, are inscribed calligraphically on a winding ribbon that is displayed in front of a mountain.

"Feeding the Multitude" acrylic on canvas, 24 x 1. The eighth picture in the book.
The traditional interpretation of this story is it illustrates the amazing power of the Christ to multiply a small amount of food. A part of the story that is often overlooked is a perspective focusing on how the boy’s very small amount of food was significant because it could be multiplied to feed the many. The boy did not hold back giving his small amount. The lesson: no amount is too little.

"Communion" acrylic on canvas, 24 x 18. The twelfth picture in the book.
The description of the Last Supper in which the Christ is said to have shared bread and wine with his disciples appears in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and the First Epistle to the Corinthians.
In the painting the image of the Christ is composed of a large crowd of people. This represents our oneness. May we all celebrate our Communion, the embracing of our oneness!

Discover the amazing truth that lies behind Jesus's teaching to love thy neighbor. Find out the hidden meaning behind our observance of the Last Supper and the Day of Pentecost.

"That They May Also Be One In Us" acrylic on canvas, 24 x 18. The thirteenth picture.
This painting is based on the prayer of the Christ as written in the Gospel of John.
This is a powerful prayer which expresses the marvelous, deep meaning of the role of the Christ in the world.

"Heroes of the Faith" acrylic on canvas, 24 x 18. This is the twenty-first picture in the book.
This painting is my interpretation of the eleventh chapter of the book of Hebrews.
The painting inspired by these verses shows a torch raised high. The word, FAITH, is stamped into the torch itself. Appearing within the flames of the fire is the word, LIFE.
