"History will preserve much, but art alone can make the narration of the suffering of the Saints comprehensible for the next generation." That statement by pioneer artiest C. C. A. Christensen might apply not only to the Saints' sufferings but also to their triumphs, their joys, their faith, and their religious heritage. Latter-day Saint art transcends boundaries of culture and time to convey the spirit that drives its creation. What is Latter-day Saint art? Images Of Faith: Art Of The Latter-day Saints answers that question in the best way possible: by leading the reader visually through the art tradition as it has developed since the organization of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1830. Some of the finest artwork from the Church's collection is presented in nearly three hundred beautiful, full-color plates. Essays by curators from the Museum of Church History and Art offer interpretive insights as well as historical background.
