Beauty in beholder's eyes

Jesus art draws mixed reviews

I'd like to express my delight at seeing the April issue enhanced by so many original artworks, especially one of my favorites, the Resurrection of Christ by Piero della Francesca (page 53). I've always wondered why The Lutheran didn't take advantage of this incredibly rich source of biblical illustration. Rembrandt alone could be the subject of an entire series on biblical art, to say nothing of the vast body of Renaissance painting from Italy. I hope we'll see more of these treasures from art history in future issues.
