SUMMARY

Wisdom, the fifth volume of The Saint John's Bible to be released, includes some of the Old Testament's literary masterpieces, including Song of Songs, Ecclesiastes, and Proverbs. Also in this volume is the much-loved book of Job and two Old Testament works originally written in Greek, Sirach and the Wisdom of Solomon. Wisdom continues the work of earlier volumes, with a script created by calligrapher Donald Jackson just for this project. There are over fifteen large illuminations, among them the spectacular frontispiece for Ecclesiastes and another titled "Creative Wisdom." As you spend time with Wisdom, you will find yourself treasuring both the words and the images in your heart. Donald Jackson is one of the world's leading calligraphers and the artistic director and illuminator of The Saint John's Bible. He is a Senior Illuminator to the Queen of England's Crown Office and is an elected Fellow and past Chairman of the prestigious society of Scribes and Illuminators. His 30-year retrospective exhibition, Painting with Words, premiered at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in August, 1988 and traveled to 13 museums and galleries. The launch of a national museum tour of the The Saint John's Bible began at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts in Minneapolis, Minnesota in April 2005 where record crowds greeted the inaugural exhibit during its three-month run. The Saint John's Bible will continue its national exhibition tour that includes museums and galleries from throughout the United States and Europe including The Tyler Museum of Art in Tyler, Texas, June 8-September 3, 2006; The Museum of Biblical Art in New York, New York, September 6-November 26; The Libraryof Congress in Washington, D.C., October 6-December 15, 2006; The Naples Museum of Art in Naples, Florida, January 26-April 16, 2007; The Phoenix Art Museum in Phoenix, Arizona, December 21, 2007-March 7, 2008; and The Mobile Museum of Art in Mobile, Alabama, October 10, 2008-April 10, 2009.Jackson, Donald is the author of 'Prophets The Saint John's Bible', published 2007 under ISBN 9780814690550 and ISBN 0814690556.
