Publisher's description: The book is inspired by Gregory of Nyssa's Contemplations on the Life of Moses, in which he uses the familiar story of Moses' life as an allegory of the journey of the soul. This book focuses on the beginning of Moses journey as a young child, symbolizing an evolutionary stage of mankind. The sequence of illustrations aims to convey the practical aspects of what we can do to accomplish that evolution. Lillian Delevoryas is an accomplished artist whose work has been exhibited internationally over the last six decades. Her work has encompassed watercolors, landscapes, tapestry and iconography. Although she is neither a writer nor a theologian, her insight as an artist gives this book a modern dimension to the understanding of ancient truths. The book is characterized by an unexpectedly refreshing quality, making it difficult to categorize. As such, it is the original and spontaneous response of the artist to the inner sense found in the profound wisdom of an early saint.
