  • This is a curiously effective collaboration between artist Lentz and Gateley, the founder of the Volunteer Missionary Movement, as well as Genesis House in Chicago, with its outreach program for women in prostitution. Lentzs striking and memorable art-familiar from many Orbis covers-is accompanied by Gateleys commentary; each section closes with a freer reflection by Gateley, often seasoned with anecdotes from her mission and outreach work. Lentzs images are contemporary icons in style and approach, not only of Christ and acknowledged saints but also of other figures-e.g., "Christ Sophia," J.R.R. Tolkien, Harvey Milk, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. The result is a beautiful and unforgettable book; highly recommended. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
