The Illustrated Gospels

£6.99

Product description

This edition of the four Gospels presents the complete text from the Authorized Version of the Bible and illustrates them from a variety of illuminated manuscripts, ranging from early Gospel texts to 16th-century books of hours. The words and pictures together provide a record of the life and death of Christ and of his teaching on Earth. The Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, with their accounts of the life of Jesus, represent the very core of Christian belief, and as much for agnostics as for members of the Christian community, they are central to the mystery of religious faith. This hardback edition is a 1993 reprint. It is bound in dark-blue, laminated boards with a colour illustration panel to front and back. This is replicated on the dustjacket. The dustjacket is torn on the top right-hand corner and is turned along the top edge. It also has a few marks, front and back. The boards similarly show signs of wear and the page block is marked. There are dark-blue end papers with a simple border line and a beautiful colour illustrated frontispiece. There are also super colour illustrated vignettes to the half-title and title pages which are all in a good condition.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
