Women of the Bible, Stunning Portfolio by Luba Lukova

 

The stunning prints in this portfolio were originally created by Luba Lukova to illustrate the book Remembering the Women, compiled by J. Frank Henderson. This book presents passages from scripture that are often not read in the liturgies of the church. Bold and contemporary, the prints depict different women from the Bible, some of whom are little known.

When the church chooses which stories to tell and which stories to live out, it gives to us or withholds from us the stories we need to make our lives. More often than not, women live on the margins of the texts, in the spaces between the words of men, in the silences and oblique glances.

Women are not silent. More than 250 scripture passages from both Testaments witness women’s presence in the Bible. Beautiful and inspiring–sometimes difficult and painful–these are the stories by which we are called to make our lives, shape our people, build our world.   (text from the publisher)
