You know how it is. You read a quote which somehow resonates with you. In this case:
In his holy flirtation with the world, God occasionally drops a handkerchief. These handkerchiefs are called saints.
The quote is by Frederick Buechner. I even wrote it in my Quote Journal at the time. And then I put his name into Amazon and looked to see what he had written. Quite a lot, as it happens. One book caught my eye: The Faces of Jesus. I ordered a secondhand copy from America and it arrived and I was busy and it got put on the shelf. All because I read a quote that I liked. (You can tell from this that I am an impulse shopper.)
The book is a series of paintings, icons, mosaics, carvings of the face of Jesus. They cover the Annunciation, Nativity, Ministry, Last Supper, Crucifixion and Resurrection. The text accompanying the pictures is by Frederick Buechner and he comments on the images, finding things that the casual onlooker might miss. There are some stunning images and some perhaps not quite to my taste, but I have really enjoyed reading the book and taking time to reflect on the art.
