Using the work of 15 artists, from Michelangelo to Millet, the editor shows how the act of praying has been represented in art. Annotation. Sister Wendy Beckett believes that prayer is a dialogue with God, and that listening is as important as talking to God. "Looking at art is one way of listening to God." in this, her first book for children, Sister Wendy has selected paintings that can speak to children, illustrating the important values of life, such as love, respect and forgiveness. She helps children to look and listen, gaining insight into art while developing a greater understanding of their own spirituality. This is a book of discovery and dialogue for all religions.
