Review 1 for The Gospels and Acts: The Saint John's Bible - NRSV
Date:June 13, 2008
I had seen a TV feature report several years ago that showed the St. John's Bible as a work in progress. After a recent discussion with my pastor about possible changes to our Sunday gospel reading, I went online to look for a copy of The Gospels. I found the Christianbook website and this volume.The artwork is beyond words. The format of the pages is larger than I expected. The calligraphy is beautiful. After admiring the Gospel and Acts volume at home, I donated it to our church. We can't wait to begin using it on Sunday mornings.
