'1000 Faces of God' is a lavish collection of religious art, spanning thousands of years and covering all of the world's major religious traditions – from 'standard' disciplines such as Christianity, Islam, Buddhism and Judaism to alternative faiths such as Paganism, Voodoo and Bahá’i. Whether a religion allows for representation of God in human form, or eschews depiction of God for abstract interpretation of the deity, this book gives the reader the background to these beliefs and provides them with their own personal collection of the best religious art the world has produced.

The author has selected significant and stunning works from the world's key religions, providing a rich collection of centuries of beautiful painting, sculpture, drawing and carving depicting images of the Divine in all His different manifestations. Chapters on God personified and in symbolic form, God one and many, God with his helpers, God in the process of creation, God in heaven and appearing on earth, God giving blessings and spreading his word, God on judgement day, God’s love and displeasure show how different religions depict the deity; each section opens with an introductory essay.

Including everything from imposing painted altar pieces and triptychs, intricately embroidered wall-hangings and detailed pen and ink drawings to jewelled bronze sculptures and statuesque wood, stone and rock carvings, this unique book will provide a visual source of inspiration for anyone interested in theology and art.
