Art and the Bible by Jim Bennett
Bennett creating bible art"Art can help us understand the Bible -- especially for those of us who are visual learners. Art can portray our highest aspirations and deepest reverence. Art can reveal deep truths of the heart that go beyond words. I have used art as a way to explore those deeper truths. I invite you to join me in this exploration.#
