Word vs. Image

Full Product Description

Arguing on recent cognitive evidence that reading a "Bible" is much more difficult for human brains than seeing images, this book exposes the depth and breadth of Protestant theologians' misunderstandings about how people could reform their spiritual lives - how they could literally change their minds. Shakespeare's achievement, accomplished for the English stage by a translation of the Italian grotesque, was to display for audiences battered by years of religious chaos and dread that a loving God was not only in heaven but in full control on earth: His providence was embodied and visible: you didn't have to read it.

Word vs. Image by Ellen Spolsky was published by Palgrave Macmillan in November 2006. The ISBN for Word vs. Image is 9780230006317.
