Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paintings I purchased this for myself and an Episcopal priest. It is a lovely book with examples of how the face of Jesus as been portrayed over the centuries. I have not been able to read through it all, so I can't speak for the text.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Art is beautifully reproduced Love the art. Can't vouch for the text (there isn't much anyway). The pictures are beautifully reproduced. The binding could be stronger, but for this clearance price, it's a steal.
