The Art of Biblical Interpretation: Visual Portrayals of Scriptural Narratives.
Co-edited with Heidi J. Hornik and Bobbi Dykema. SBL Bible and its Reception series. Atlanta: SBL Press, 2021.
For centuries Christians have engaged their sacred texts as much through the visual as through the written word. Yet until recent decades, the academic disciplines of biblical studies and art history largely worked independently. This volume bridges that gap with the interdisciplinary work of biblical scholars and art historians. Focusing on the visualization of biblical characters from both the Old and New Testaments, essays illustrate the potential of such collaboration for a deeper understanding of the Bible and its visual reception.
