DescriptionWisdom, 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.
