The Greatest Sermon Ever SungTony Pittenger (Author), Jonathan Mayer (Illustrator)
Messiah is a stunningly illustrated running commentary on G. F. Handel's great oratorio. The understandable explanations and insightful artwork help the reader appreciate the theology expressed by librettist Charles Jennens' scriptural selections as well as Handel's musical treatment of the texts.
Originally designed as a listening Bible study, this book is also suitable for home devotional use. The perfect conversation starter, it will not remain on a coffee table or bookshelf for long. Illuminating an annual Christmas tradition, Messiah tells the whole story: the story of sin, the story of salvation, and the story of our Savior.
