Images of Faith: Reflections Inspired by Lilias Trotter goes beyond the biographical facts of Lilias's life-Victorian-era artist, protege of John Ruskin, ground-breaking social worker, missionary to Algeria, inspirational author-to ponder the deeper meaning of her life. Some 60 devotional reflections start with a short Trotter quotation, often selected from unpublished diaries, and a full-color Trotter watercolor. Miriam Rockness-who as biographer has lived and breathed and absorbed the world and mind-set of Lilias for the past thirty years-then shares contemporary-life reflections that complement and match the spiritual insights of Lilias herself.
This expanded (volumes 1 & 2) edition of Images of Faith is newly designed for easy devotional access and features additional content, opening vistas to Images of ...Joy, God, Redemption,Spiritual Growth, Prayer, Service, Refreshment, and Faith. A spirit-inspiring read for Lilias admirers and a compelling introduction for those who have not yet made her acquaintance. Here you'll find profound devotional reflections that bridge our "now" with Lilias Trotter's timeless art and classic spiritual insights.
