BOOK EXCERPT:

These seven essays offer fresh perspectives on beauty’s role in revelation. Each essay features a hermeneutical approach informed by the contemporary study of aesthetics. Covering a series of texts in the Hebrew Bible and New Testament, from Adam and Eve in the garden to Jesus on trial in the Fourth Gospel, the authors engage beauty from three overarching perspectives: modern philosophy, contextual criticism, and the postcritical return to beauty’s primary qualities. The three perspectives are not harmonized but rather explored concurrently to create a volume with intriguing methodological tensions. As this collection highlights beauty in the narratives of scripture, it opens readers to a largely unexplored dimension of the Bible. The contributors are Richard J. Bautch, Jo-Ann A. Brant, Mark Brummitt, David Penchansky, Antonio Portalatín, Jean-François Racine, and Peter Spitaler.

"Afrocentricity seeks to rescue African history and heritage from its exile within our culture and encourage within African Americans the God-given self-esteem and dignity that have been eroded over the years. What better forum is there than the pulpit to proclaim hope through a clear message of freedom and worth? "--from the Forword by Cain Hope Felder.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Beautifully illustrated work from an eminent authority on the Bible, art, and culture Beauty is a highly significant subject in the Bible. So is holiness. In this study of Christian fine art David Lyle Jeffrey explores the relationship between beauty and holiness as he integrates aesthetic perspectives from the ancient Hebrew Scriptures through Augustine, Aquinas, and Kant down to contemporary philosophers of art. Incorporating sample artworks ranging from the Roman catacombs to Marc Chagall, Jeffrey demonstrates that the Bible has consistently been the most profound and productive resource for the visual arts in the West. He contextualizes Western European art from the second century through the twenty-first in relation not only to the biblical narrative but also to liturgy and historical theology. Lavishly illustrated with more than one hundred masterworks, In the Beauty of Holiness is ideally suited to students of Christian fine art and to general readers wanting to better understand the story of Christian art through the centuries.

font size="+1"'The beauty bible we've all been dreaming of' BUSTLE/font size font size="+1"'Dedicated to women of colour, but one that we all can learn from.' CAROLINE HIRONS/font size AS FEATURED IN GLAMOUR, METRO, DAILY TELEGRAPH AND OBSERVER AN INDEPENDENT SELECTION FOR AUTUMN 2019 A GRAZIA BEAUTY BOOK CLUB PICK 'This ground-breaking, first-of-its-kind book is not only destined to become the beauty bible for women of colour everywhere, it is also a significant, relevant and influential voice in the conversation around inclusivity. Essential reading' EDWARD ENNINFUL The idea for Palette came to Vogue Contributing Beauty Editor Funmi Fetto after years of being asked by friends, family and strangers on the street for advice on products suitable for women of colour, who often find themselves excluded from mainstream beauty coverage. Following on from her career in journalism where she has extended the beauty conversation in publications such as the Observer - for whom she writes a weekly column - and written in an honest, elegant and engaging style, Fetto covers all the hair, skincare, makeup and body products available today which really work for women of colour. 'If anyone is going to decode beauty's most inclusive and brilliant products, it should be Funmi. This woman really knows her stuff and delivers it in such warm and chatty way. It's a bit like going shopping with your very beauty savvy best friend who happens to have a wicked sense of humour' LISA ELDRIDGE 'Warm, witty and welcoming' GAL-DEM

BOOK EXCERPT:

Every woman can accentuate her God-given beauty using the hidden treasures of the ancient Scriptures. Ginger Garrett reveals how every woman can accent her God-given beauty using the hidden treasures of the ancient Scriptures-where every scent and every act of beautification had spiritual and emotional significance. A woman's longing to present herself as physically beautiful is universal. Beauty is extolled throughout the Bible as complementing God's plan for women's lives. There are currently no books that examine the beauty practices of biblical women, the plants and products God created to accent their beauty, and the spiritual roots of feminine rituals. Beautiful women abound in the Bible: Queen Esther, the bride of Solomon, Delilah, Rachel, Sarah, and more. Their beauty was a gift from God, and God also supplied the many foods, spices, and oils that perfected each woman's appearance. In Beauty Secrets of the Bible, Ginger Garrett helps readers accent their God-given beauty using these secrets. Women who read the book will understand the essential oils and fragrances mentioned in Scripture (and why they are making a comeback) and will be able to create a regimen based on all-natural ancient products and techniques. Beauty Secrets of the Bible gives readers what other beauty books lack: the knowledge that a woman's unique earthly beauty is indeed a blessing from God that can be cultivated.
