About the Author

The late George Ferguson was Rector of Saint Philip's In the Hills Episcopal Parish in Tucson, Arizona.


"A tremendous help to so many students who haven't been raised with the exposure to Christian iconography. Thanks!"-- Nancy Noonan-Morrissey, Front Range Community College "Excellent reference book--well-organized and highly informative--also, moderately priced!"--Marie Canaves, Cape Cod Community College "Ferguson has brought a dead language back to life. He writes simply and clearly."--The Chicago Tribune "[A] superb volume."--The Christian Century "An extraordinarily beautiful and useful book....For clergymen, both Protestant and Catholic, who are interested in liturgies and symbolism, for architects and artists, and for all devotees of art this is an unusually valuable volume."--Kirkus Reviews "A good book of reference for the general reader."--The Nation "The publication of this book is an important event. There is no comparable guide in English to the profoundly beautiful symbolism of Christian art."--John Walker, Director Emeritus of the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. "Whether as a reference work or as an invitation to fascinating browsing, the book is a treasure."--Journal of Bible and Religion "An excellent resource with its nicely organized and easy-to-find explanations of persons, symbols, events/beliefs depicted in Christian art. My students found it to be a useful tool as they worked on their interpretations of paintings and other artistic renderings of NT texts. I hope this book will stay in print."--Professor Benjamin Fiore, Canisius College
