The Servant King is a unique guide for personal reflection and prayer during the Lent period from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday. Images drawn from artists around the world combine with readings from the Revised Common Lectionary Yr. B to relate the theme of Jesus as Servant and King. Each image is paired with a reflection and short prayer, while a comment explores the reading in more depth. Words and images work powerfully together to offer an inspirational basis for meditating on God's Word.
This is a keepsake book that combines words, prayers, and illustrations. Illustrations mainly, but not exclusively, are by artists from the developing world. They have been chosen for their less familiar perspective and the new light they give on events in the Gospel narratives.
'...True religious art can nourish the soul and sustain us day by day. I warmly welcome this set of paintings and meditations. They will be a great help in sustaining daily Christian discipleship...'--The Bishop of Oxford, Richard Harries
