Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

The book of Psalms lies at the very heart of the Bible--a most appropriate place, as it expresses a wealth of emotions in richly metaphorical language. For that reason, it's a favorite for many artists as well as lovers of beautiful writing. Timothy R. Botts's expressive calligraphy and artwork bring a joyous impact to the complete text in the New Living Translation. "The skies display His marvelous craftsmanship" (Psalm 19) is superimposed on an image of the sun, beaming forth the news that God has placed it in the skies. "You are the fountain of life, the light by which we see" (Psalm 36) curls across the page in lovely waves cresting on a blue background. Botts's brief notes for each calligraphic piece bring insight to the artwork as well as to the poetry of each Psalm. The book's exceptionally beautiful printing and cover make it a perfect gift book for a Christian art lover.

mr. botts does excellent work. he powerfully expresses certain psalms by using beautiful calligraphy and creative colors. he has a way of making them "hit" you.
i found myself wishing there had been more calligraphy in the book - the whole book of psalms is printed, and mr. botts' wonderful art is interspersed throughout.
the book is definitely worth the money; in fact, i am now inspired to learn calligraphy and make my own Scripture art to place around the house. :)
may Jesus continue to be honored!!

Timothy Botts is a great calligrapher & artist who has devoted himself to illustrating Biblical passages. His work plumbs the depths of the scripture passages with which he is working--and also happen to be gorgeous pieces of art.

Botts is the art director for a major Christian publisher, which explains how he has managed to get a publisher to spend the big bucks for top-quality paper and printing for his books. We are the beneficiaries of this wonderful collaboration between a gifted artist and a publisher-with-a-vision.

I am enjoying this book, which is in "The Message" version. I think he has progressed as an artist since publishing Psalms, but the calligraphy is inspiring nonetheless.

Timothy Botts was featured in our local newspaper as a master calligrapher. As it happens the very evening the article was in the newspaper, I attended the first planning session for our church women's retreat. The presenter was talking about her program for the weekend and began talking about this master calligrapher whose powerful imagery she was intending to use in her program. I knew right away it must be Timothy Botts and, indeed, it was. As soon as I returned home I ordered two copies of The Book of Psalms; one to keep and one to give to a friend. One must see it in person to appreciate the written word portrayed through Timothy's pen. At one turn of the page there is the powerful illustration of Psalm 46:10-11. Complete despair in Psalm 38 is fully revealed in Timothy's art (he explains why he penned the work in the manner depicted). He ends the book with a bang, quite literally, with Psalm 150. I have never witnessed such a noisy work of art, but it sings to me!
