FORGIVEN

by Roy Lessin

Published by Workman 2001 ISBN:1884009077

109077: Forgiven: The Painting by Thomas Blackshear II Forgiven:
The Painting by Thomas Blackshear II

Forgiven is a beautiful book, not only for the gripping painting by Thomas Blackshear II, which it studies, but also for the way the text focuses on the details, just one or two at a time, in a meaningful way.

The painting is one of Christ lovingly holding up a despairing young man, dressed in clothes of our culture, who still holds the mallet and nail with which he crucified Christ.

Roy Lessin, the author, looks at details such as the darkness surrounding the figures, the guilt, the repentance of the man, the grace Christ shows him, redemption in the blood trickling at Jesus' feet, worship and holiness in the lilies springing up, and so on. This gives the reader a guided study of the picture, so that one can draw out all the meaning and implications.

Blackshear's highly acclaimed work includes 28 portraits of famous black Americans commissioned by the U.S. Postal service. Yet, he left a successful secular career in illustration to devote himself to God's purposes.

Presently he works with the MasterPeace Collection, a division of DaySpring Cards to produce books such as this with Roy Lessin. Let's watch then, for more of these high quality books that we can give unashamedly to people who need to discover the message.
