Sr. Armanda to sign new book at RE Congress Feb 27, 28, March 1

February 21, 2009

paul-bookFacing the Apostle
Paul’s Image in Art

By Armanda Santos, FSP

armanda

Discover Saint Paul, the bold and passionate preacher of the Gospel, through his many different portrayals in art. Facing the Apostle features thirteen images of Saint Paul, ranging from celebrated masterpieces to the works of little-known contemporary artists. Sr. Armanda reflects on each piece of art, drawing from them meditations on aspects of Paul’s life and message. Facing the Apostle will help you see Saint Paul in whole new way.

In this handsome and well-planned volume, Sister Armanda invites the reader to rediscover and meditate upon the iconography of St. Paul…
Starting with a quotation from Sacred Scripture, she weaves biography, formal analysis, aesthetics, theology, history, and legend together in her chapters. Then each study is completed with a prayer that raises this wealth of information up to the spiritual plane. This is essential. For what good is Christian art if it does not draw us closer to God?
—From the foreword by Michael Morris, OP, Professor of Religion and the Arts, Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology, Berkeley, California

What Are People Saying about this Title?
“…..  Highly recommended for devotion during the Year of Paul or anytime one wants to ruminate on the impact of this powerful premier apostle.”
— Ronald D. Witherup, S.S., Superior General of the Society of St. Sulpice, Professor of Sacred Scripture, and author of Saint Paul: Called to Conversion

“….This book shows in a fascinating way the real and everlasting connection between art and spirituality.”
— Rodolfo Papa, Professor of the History of Aesthetic Theory, Pontifical Urbaniana University, Rome

About the author
Sr. Armanda Santos is a long-time admirer of St. Paul, having entered the congregation of the Daughters of St. Paul at a young age. She holds a masters degree in Theology with a concentration on Religion and the Arts, from the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology in Berkeley, California.
