Sacred : books of the three faiths : Judaism, Christianity, Islam by Karen Armstrong( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sacred is the lush official catalog of the groundbreaking British Library exhibit bearing the same name, which presents many of the worldʹs most beautiful religious texts for the first time. Illustrations from rare and exquisite examples of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim sacred texts from the Libraryʹs collections, along with unique treasures on loan from other institutions, are showcased and accompanied by essays from three of todayʹs leading religious scholars that explore aspects of the three faiths, including their historical development and contemporary meaning. Stunning full-color illustrations of many previously unreproduced manuscripts from the shared history of the three major religions are paired and brought into compellingly modern context by perceptive writers on religion such as Karen Armstrong, Everett Fox, Frank Peters, and Kathleen Doyle. -- Description from http://www.torontopubliclibrary.ca (May 10, 2012)
