Sixteen centuries of Christian art and history are covered by the 40 images of St Paul that Sister Wendy has chosen to lead us into the minds of the artists and into the very heart of St Paul. The images and commentaries are divided into two groups – the first showing illustrations of St Paul’s life and the second concentrating on his personality. With the critical insight of an artist, Sr Wendy brings alive these pictures of St Paul. Through her deep knowledge of scripture she helps us to use the pictures to bring out key themes in his life and writings. Inspired by her contemplative life spent close to God, she is able to bring these two things together and thus enrich our lives as we strive, like St Paul, to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world.
