Over the centuries, scribes have brought biblical texts to life by illustrating them with designs and images rendered in precious metals and vivid colors. This long tradition of illuminating manuscripts has helped the devout have a deeper encounter with the words on the page. Walter Ratliff takes the next step in this tradition by illuminating passages about "The Heavens" from the King James Bible with vivid images produced by the Hubble, Spitzer and Chandra space telescopes. This simple approach lets the reader marvel at the distant wonders of creation, and reflect on God's Word.
