The biblical world : an illustrated atlas by Jean-Pierre Isbouts( )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,048 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Casting the tumultuous history of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam against the rich canvas of the Near East, The Biblical World reveals how three great religions emerged from the same cradle. Author Jean-Pierre Isbouts employs a non-denominational perspective and a wide range of sources--from ancient hieroglyphic texts to the latest scientific finding--to place Bible stories in the framework of history. Chronologically arranged chapters detail battles, conquests, tribal migrations, natural calamities, and more, supporting the stories with intriguing archaeological evidence. The story traces the evolution of Judaism from Abraham to the Unified Kingdom of Israel, chronicles the emergence of Christianity in the context of Greco-Roman civilization, and identifies the unique circumstances that prepared for the rise of Islam. The multi-dimensional approach weighs similarities and differences among the three faiths and follows developments in nearby lands. The Biblical World offers a carefully researched, balanced view of history and religious tradition. --From publisher's description

Young Leonardo : the evolution of a revolutionary artist, 1472-1499 by Jean-Pierre Isbouts( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The traditional view of Leonardo da Vinci's career is that he enjoyed a promising start in Florence and then moved to Milan to become the celebrated court artist of Duke Ludovico Sforza. Young Leonardo proves all of this wrong. It reveals how the struggling painter was repeatedly snubbed by the prevailing trends of Florentine style before escaping to Milan empty-handed. But Milan offered little more; Sforza's patronage was lukewarm, to say the least, and all the major commissions went to artists whose names are now forgotten. How did the amateur become one of the all-time greatest masters? Slowly, meticulously, disastrously. Focusing on an often neglected period in Leonardo's life, here is a fascinating window into the artist's mind as he develops the techniques that will transform Western art forever. Because before there could be a Last Supper, a Mona Lisa, a St. Anne, there had to be a young Leonardo"--

Young Jesus : restoring the "lost years" of a social activist and religious dissident by Jean-Pierre Isbouts( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A revolutionary look at the early life of Christ. Drawing on new evidence from the historical and archeological record, as well as insightful close readings of both the canonical and the Gnostic Gospels, Dr. Jean-Pierre Isbouts paints a fascinating portrait of Jesus as a grass-roots reformer with a social agenda who?s as much dissident as messiah. Dr. Isbouts reveals an adolescent Jesus scarred by peasant rebellion, economic repression, and the wholesale displacement of the Galilean peasantry. Using modern economic, forensic, and psychological models as well as information from Roman and Jewish documents, Isbouts shows how these horrifying conditions galvanized Christ?s mission as a social activist and religious rebel. Isbouts?s approach is sophisticated and secular, though respectful of faith, and results in a narrative of compelling interest for a wide range of readers?from scholars to skeptics to believers. A 16-page color insert with photos of historic sites, archaeological digs, and artwork enhances the text
