World-renowned Bible exhibit coming to Urbanna
The Smithsonian Magazine calls the Saint John’s Bible “one of the most extraordinary undertakings of our time.”
Urbanna Baptist Church, Urbanna Business Association and Urbanna United Methodist Church are partnering to bring this incredible project to Middlesex County and the greater Mid-Tidewater region. On Wednesday, March 4, Dr. Tracy Hartman of Baptist Theological Seminary in Richmond will make a presentation on the Saint John’s Bible project beginning at 6:45 p.m. at Urbanna Baptist Church, with an open exhibit of The Saint John’s Bible to follow.
In 1998, Saint John’s Abbey and University commissioned renowned calligrapher Donald Jackson to produce a hand-written, hand-illustrated Bible. The community is invited to explore this great work, which unites an ancient Benedictine tradition with the technology and vision of today, illuminating the Word of God for a new millennium.
