Alexandria woman releases new book
Deborah Holt of Alexandria recently released a book, The Seven Sacraments and Life in the Trinity - A Love Story Between God and His People.
The book is written and illustrated by Holt and includes a CD entitled "Anointed," sung by Called by Grace.
Holt was inspired to draw the first picture for the book in January 1997 after a personal crisis and a period of deep inner reflection and prayer. One picture led to another, and they are all symbolic in nature. After her 10th illustration, she realized that they needed to be part of a book.
Each picture is a chapter that includes a song leading into Trinity/Sacrament; questions leading into the picture; a list of the symbols in the picture; Old and New Testament readings; the picture itself; and another song for Sacrament.
The book ends with a reference to all the symbols used throughout the pictures and where they and/or their symbolism are referred to in Scripture.
Life in the Trinity is available at Cherry Street Books in Alexandria or by contacting the artist/author at: Draw Near Ministries, Deborah Holt, P.O. Box 264, Sauk Centre, MN 56378; by calling (320) 491-4594; or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
