About-

This volume provides a collection of prayers and artwork based on the New Testament texts, inviting readers to join in the Spirit's moving through words, figures, and colors. Yeo and Matheny offer this resource to worship leaders, those interested in spirituality, prayers, and artistic expressions of the New Testament. The process of praying and painting the New Testament allows the Spirit to intercede for God's will in the world and incarnate peace in our lives that surpasses all understanding.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Yeo, ably matched by Claire Matheny, lets the text surge into contemporary life with its ample measure of loss and pain, of wonder and possibility. The 'connect' that the Spirit makes between Scripture and contemporary faith is accomplished in the rich and daring utterance of prayer. The author has probed deeply into the human condition and lets it intersect with the biblical text in compelling ways. The book is a model for the interaction that faith and culture must always undertake anew, an interaction that at its best evokes human dignity among us. The interplay of utterance and image in this volume make for a powerful invitation."
--Walter Brueggemann, author of Praying the Psalms, 2nd ed.

"In The Spirit Intercedes: The New Testament in Prayers and Images, K. K. Yeo brings together his excellence as a New Testament scholar with his lively Christian faith to craft inspiring prayers for biblically literate Christians. The prayers, which draw richly on biblical narratives and imagery, will lead those who pray them more deeply into Scripture. They are appropriate both for Bible study and for worship. Dr. Yeo's book, enriched by evocative pictures by Claire Matheny, is an important contribution to the spiritual tradition of praying the Scriptures."
--Ruth Duck, Professor of Worship, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary
