As an accomplished Scripture scholar, a highly regarded teacher, a monk of Saint John's Abbey, and the chair of the Committee on Illumination and Text that provided the vision to the artists who created it, Patella may be the only one who could write this book with such insight, expertise, and love. His books include Angels and Demons: Patella's commentary helps to draw out some of the sometimes subtle aspects of The St. John's Bible , such as the commitment to juxtapose the biblical text with science without dismissing the observations of either. Patella serves as a helpful and insightful guide to the project's historical and hermeneutical foundations as well as to the Bible's images.

Patella considers this bible in the great Christian tradition of illuminated Bibles across the ages and also fascinating ways The Saint John's Bible reflects third-millennium concerns. The Hermeneutics of The Saint John's Bible is an important text that comments and instructs upon the most essential and influential book in the world. Although it requires careful and prayerful thought, and will challenge some 'conservative' ideas, Patella's text is essential reading for pastors, liturgists, catechists, and anyone interested in how theology and arts intersect.

The Saint John's Bible is a magnificent memorial of two millennia of Christianity. Now in Word and Image we are led behind the scenes to delve into the theological underpinnings that nurtured the artists who produced The Saint John's Bible. Word and Image shows how the best of contemporary biblical interpretation informed the artists as they created images that reflect the biblical text for our day.

It reveals how the theological and spiritual dimensions involved in reading and illuminating the biblical text can live in harmony, each building on the other.
