  • Sixth part of a set of full-colour reproductions from "The Saint Johns Bible", Gospel and "Acts." This volume contains 25 illuminations, including full-page opening illuminations for each of the four gospels.

    Donald Jackson, a world renowned calligrapher and illuminator, in collaboration with artists and theologians, has woven together word and image in this once-in-a-millennium project. Significant in both size and scope, The Saint Johns Bible will be bound in seven magnificent volumes comprising nearly 1,100 pages, measuring 15 7/8 inches wide x 24 1/2 inches tall. The translation of the Saint Johns Bible is the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV). It was chosen because it is theologically sound, and has the distinction of being officially authorized for use by major Christian churches.

    Commissioned by the monks of Saint Johns Abbey and University as a Bible for our time, The Saint Johns Bible is a unique blend of ancient methods, materials and tools with modern themes, images, technology and text. Whether you have a deep reverence for Scripture, are drawn to the precise work of the quill, are an avid art collector, or are fascinated by the making of The Saint Johns Bible, you now have the opportunity to take home the experience of this project through full-color, page-by-page reproduction books.

    This is a work of art this is a great work of art this is a work for eternity.

    - His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI

    We tend to read greedily and hastily, as we do so many other things: this beautiful text shows us a better way. This project not only revives the ancient tradition of the church sponsoring creative arts, it also offers an insight into that lost skill of patient and prayerful reading.

    - The Archbishop of Canterbury, The Most Reverend Rowan Williams

    The glow of brilliant colour and the striking if not startling inter-textual designing gracing another volume of The Saint Johns Bible provide ample justification for this joint project of St. Johns Abbey and Saint Johns University.
