Bound For Glory
Timothy R. Botts with reflections by Patricia Raybon
Tyndale House Publishers
I agreed to review this book not long after my sister, mother, and a few friends of ours had been given a lesson (by a wonderful lady in our church) on how to write in calligraphy. So this book, of course, warranted great interest when I saw it available on Tyndale's website.
Inside the hardbound cover is collection of expressive calligraphy inspired by African American Spirituals. Several of these songs I'm familiar with, and I was eager to see my favorites. Though many of the color choices of the art is not really my style, and reminded me a little of the sixties-era magazines inherited from my great-grandmother, the actual writing is creative and well-done. My personal favorites were "Joshua and the Battle of Jericho", "When the Saints Come Marching In" "Amen" and "The Blind Man".
I received this book for free from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
