This is one of the greatest Art books that I have ever read about one of the greatest master painters Fra Angelico. I have read many art books about Fra Angelico but this is by the far the greatest, because Stephen Beissel has a wide and deep knowledge about The Christian Theology and symbolism behind the masterpieces that Fra Angelico painted unlike many so-called art experts who interpret such profound icons in a purely artistic fashion rather than grasping the spiritual meaning of these icons. Stephen Beissel gives a tremendous explanation about how Fra Angelico focused on depicting the majesty and Divinity of Christ in his masterpieces like that of The Transfiguration, The Last Judgement or Christ Majestic serenity and calm in Angelico's depiction of His August Last Supper, or the Glory of Christ in heaven in the painting of the Coronation of the Virgin Mother of God and The Virginal Purity of The Mother of God in his painting of the Annunciation. This is a great book, and I congratulate Stephen Beissel for such great keen and insightful Art Book.
