Remembering the Prophets of Sacred Scripture
Marianna Mayer. Dial Books, $16.99 (32pp) ISBN 978-0-8037-2727-4
Marianna Mayer adds to her list of picture book reference works about biblical themes with the beautifully designed Remembering the Prophets of Sacred Scripture. Elegantly printed with red and gold accents, the text reviews the contributions of the prophets, from Moses to Elijah and Elisha, from Amos to Malachi. As in past volumes, Mayer pairs her writing with masterpieces of European art, so that insets and single pages introduce works by Rembrandt, Renaissance paintings, illuminated Bibles, Byzantine mosaics and more.
