Illuminating Luke: The Infancy Narrative in Italian Renaissance Painting.

Art historian Heidi J. Hornik and New Testament scholar Mikeal C. Parsons work together in Illuminating Luke: The Infancy Narrative in Italian Renaissance Painting (Trinity Press International, $34.95) to discuss five paintings as interpretations of Lukan texts. The stress is on the painters and their paintings. Hornik is an informed art historian. The color prints of the paintings are good. More art historical than biblical interpretation, this work will be good reading in the Christmas season. EK
