Celebrating the role Christianity has played in the creation of some of humankind's greatest masterpieces, this book is meant to be "a sort of travel guide to the treasures of our tradition." Not all of the works are overtly religious - Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, for example, is featured because "with her novels, she cast a light upon human relationships and, strengthened by the perceptions of her faith, offered her readers gentle lessons in how to become a better human being." Other masterpieces, of course, have a very clear connection to Christianity: Hildegard of Bingen's choral work Ordo Virtutum, Dante's The Divine Comedy, Michelangelo's Ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, John Newton's hymn "Amazing Grace," Gaudi's La Sagrada Familia Cathedral, and many more. This sweeping survey is illustrated, but the true inspiration comes from the stories behind these incredible works of art, literature, music, and film, spanning the ages from catacomb paintings circa 300 to a Terrence Malick film from 2011.
