Introduction by Jim Forest
Book Description "The beauty of this book demands that it be handled over and over and its message of compassion and peace thereby etched on the mind and heart of the reader."--Citation for Catholic Book Award, First Place in Spirituality
"This book is an experience. If you read it, you'll never get over it."--The Sooner Catholic
"Fritz Eichenberg sees the artist as one who sees into the soul of things, sensing impending change, suffering with humanity."--Dorothy Day
Fritz Eichenberg, who died in 1991 at the age of 90, was one of the world's master wood engravers, renowned for his illustrations of literary classics. He achieved a different fame from his forty years of contributions to The Catholic Worker newspaper, represented in this stunning volume. His renderings of the life of Christ--among the homeless, the hungry, and the persecuted--represent a unique spiritual vision.
