Inhaltsangabe: What does the Bible say?
Fifty Biblical Portraits answers this question through a series of meditative studies of some of the central characters of the Old Testament. From Adam and Eve to Abraham and Moses, from Samson and Samuel to Job and Judith, Paul Beauchamp, S.J., presents, through the translation of Peter Rogers, S.J., fifty brief yet patient reflections on the stories of these and other figures whose lives helped shape the history of biblical Israel.
Accompanied by the drawings of Pierre Grassignoux, which are themselves renditions of art works of these figures, each meditation or reflection is a portrait in word and image. Fifty Biblical Portraits is thus a unique way to enter into and reflect upon the rich life and history that is the life and history of biblical Israel.
Über den Autor:
Paul Beauchamp, SJ, a French Jesuit (1924-2001), was professor of Sacred Scripture at the Centre Sevres in Paris and at the Pontifical Biblical Institute in Rome. His research centered on the relationship of the Old and New Testaments and on wisdom literature.
Pierre Grassignoux, a sculptor and drawer from Thenezay, which is located in the Poitou Charentes region on France, offers his renditions of art works that have depicted Old Testament characters. He thus complements, in an Ignatian vein, the search for meaning in sacred word and in the images that have been given it.
Peter S. Rogers, SJ, is the author of Proust: Speculative Scripture and The Mystery Play in Madame Bovary: Moeurs de Province. He translated Gabriel Marcel's autobiographical En chemin, vers quel eveil (Gallimard 1971), published by Marquette University Press as Awakenings in 2002 (reprinted in 2008).
