Looking at a Masterpiece

Madeleine Stebbins
Emmaus Road Publishing,
176 pages

“Sacred art is true and beautiful when its form corresponds to its particular vocation: evoking and glorifying, in faith and adoration, the transcendent mystery of God,” states the Catechism of the Catholic Church (#2502). Madeleine Stebbins, who along with husband H. Lyman Stebbins co-founded Catholics United for the Faith, no doubt had this idea in mind when she wrote the brief observations and meditations that accompany the 43 vibrant images that constitute this beautiful hardcover coffee-table book. Rather than explore art history, this book simply invites the reader to behold the beautiful images and contemplate the truth each radiates. This is a keeper.
