Unmistakable Marks of Beauty

It is hard for me to see beauty in the world today. The threat of the coronavirus, social distancing, and social injustice casts a dark cloud over our lives. We need to be brought back to God’s connection on beauty with faith. With On Beauty and Faith by Alabaster, we have a book designed to explore beauty and its profound implications for our lives. The story of the woman with the alabaster jar from Mark 14:1-11 is explained and examined. The text relates beauty to art, identity, generosity, vulnerability, mystery, justice, and changing the world. It is a compelling read and will encourage you to explore and think through your own creative life. Alabaster does a fantastic job of lingering on the Biblical text, letting it soak in and drinking in every detail. In one standout section, I was inspired to know that the unnamed woman remains anonymous in the Gospel of Mark, yet her path of invisible beauty was seen and connected with the King, Jesus Christ. This book has reignited my passion to search for and see God’s unmistakable marks of beauty in the world. It will challenge and change you. We are called to create and work out our own lives of faith and beauty in this world, for the glory of God and the good of others.

An in-depth exploration of what beauty means!

I really loved learning about beauty, not as a surface level kind of beauty, but beauty as art, as wonder, and as restoring all of creation to what was originally intended by God. This book opened my eyes to the Gospel itself being beautiful and really challenged me to think about beauty in a new and refreshing way! *I received this book complimentary through Alabaster's Influencer Program

A Joy to Dive into the Depths of Beauty

This book goes deep. I love it. Taking a subject that I have become passionate about over the years and putting it into such apt and well... beautiful words. My two favorite chapters are Beauty and Identity and Beauty and Vulnerability. Wow. I mean just wow. Like I said this book does not splash in the shallow end, but rather invites you to tread water in the deep. It causes you to appreciate and even crave beauty in a whole new way. It fuels a passion to partner with the Lord to discover and create beauty. Please note, this review was given in exchange for the book. However all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Beauty at an Entirely New Level

Alabaster has outdone themselves, yet again! The level of detail, care and intentionality they put into this project is evident with every page. Each chapter is so unique and stunning. I truly cannot wait to receive my printed copy that was gifted to me as a part of the Alabaster Influence Program. This is a powerful book that I know I will get swept away in the beauty, wonder and creativity the pages hold! Well done, Alabaster!

When I heard Alabaster was making a devotional I got so excited! They really did an amazing job on Beauty and Faith. It’s such a great read and the beautiful photography makes flipping through the pages such an incredible experience. I would definitely recommend picking this up, or getting it as a gift for a friend.
