After more than twelve years, the creation of "The Saint John's Bible" has reached its remarkable conclusion. Renowned calligrapher and illuminator Donald Jackson has collaborated with scribes, artists, and theologians to hand- create, with stunning lettering and exquisite illustrations, the entire Bible. The complete project spans seven volumes in published form.

"Letters and Revelation" is the final volume of the entire monumental project. It includes some of the most crucial works of al the Christian Scriptures: epistles traditionally attributed toPaul, John, Peter, James, and Jude, and the fascinating book of Revelation. Donald Jackson's artistic Vision lends them a new life and vibrancy for modern readers.

"Letters and Revelation" contains more than thirty illuminations and special text treatments. Among the stunning illuminations: And Every Tongue Should Confess(Philippians 2:5-11) includes the word Lord" painted in gold in fourteen different languages: Armenian, Chinese, Coptic, Greek, English, French, Ge'ez (Ethiopian), German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and VietnameseLetter to the Seven Churches with the Heavenly Choir (Revelation 2:1-5:14), includes crosses representing several different Christian traditions and the words "Holy, Holy, Holy" written in Greek, Ge'ez (Ethiopian), and LatinThe Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (Revelation 6:1-8) depicts unsettling symbols of power, greed, and exploitation-military tanks, oil rigs, and nuclear power.

Written and drawn entirely by hand using quills and paints hand-ground from precious minerals and stones-such as lapis lazuli, malachite, silver, and 24-karat gold- "The Saint John's Bible" celebrates the tradition of medieval manuscripts while embracing twenty-first-century technology to facilitate the design process and collaboration between Saint John's Abbey in Collegeville, Minnesota, and Donald Jackson's scriptorium in Wales.
