Telling the story of biblical women in a new way, this book draws the reader down further down her spiritual path and closer to Christ. For too long, women in the Bible have been demonized, overly sanctified, or simply misunderstood. Here, through storytelling and artwork, twelve compelling women of the Bible share their stories from a first-person perspective.
Over three years, Karen Canton developed twelve bold and expressive portraits for The Scarlet Cord as seen throughout this website and in the book, using the colors and patterns of Europe’s rich ethnic traditions. Within each painting is a range of historical and faith-based symbols, both abstract and realistic. To learn more about Karen’s work, drop me a note.
