“God’s Angels Through the Eyes of Artists”
Rich in content, this program is very visual exposing the attendees to famous paintings they may have seen in various museums or books. The Biblical references provide the structure for interpreting the divine order.
You will leave with:

– Increased exposure to different religions and the role of angels in their religious beliefs.
– Realization of the impact angels have on art, music, literature, and the media.
“Your knowledge of the subject and ability to incorporate Biblical references, along with slides of Old Masters’ paintings of angels, was most intriguing and interesting. You kept everyone’s attention.”

This program is quite adaptable and can be presented in multiple segments to provide more in-depth knowledge.
Ideal for weekend retreats!
Angels are mentioned 108 times in the Old Testament and 165 times in the New Testament. Artists have painted angels who warn, comfort, fight or instruct us. Stories about angels are also prevalent in various forms of literature including stories from other lands, religions, and even children’s books. You will discover how your own perception of angels has been formed not only by Biblical texts, but also by the stories and artist’s paintings over the centuries.
