Book Description

Aug. 15 2007
Originally published in France, this extensively illustrated, hand-sized volume pairs popular stories from the Old Testament with over 150 of a master painter's finest works. Chagall began illustrating the Bible in 1931. It became a lifelong passion. A New York Times review of an exhibit exclaimed that it was "a lively and enriching way for anyone ... to become reacquainted with scenes and stories from the Old Testament."

2.0 out of 5 stars Partial illustrations did not meet expectations March 5 2008
By Patrick H. Blythe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'm not well qualified to critique the word of God so I'll limit my comments to the illustrations. Many of the illustrations are small segments cut out of larger works of art. It is difficult to appreciate the wonderful paintings of Chagall when you only see 5% of a painting. Otherwise this is a beautiful little book.

Beautiful book. How could it not be beautiful if it's Chagall? I'd love it if it were larger, but gorgeous as it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Modernist Approach March 24 2010
By Kevin Fuller - Published on Amazon.com
Marc Chagall, painter - Informed by the Bible, Chagall found that in the Biblical Universe, men could float through the ether willy-nilly, defying gravity and the laws of physics. Chagall's use of color and whimsical flight of fancy motifs (men and women in loving embraces, floating over houses and livestock), animals floating through the air with smiles on their faces, and so on, are a reminder that religion need not be taken so literally and seriously all the time and that the line between the profane and the Divine is not that thick of a line afterall.
