Borrowing the Eyes of Others: Reflecting with paintings, Volume I
Denis McBride
Redemptorist, £9.95
(978-0-85231-351-0)
Church Times bookshop price £8.95

Fernando Botero’s The Promenade is the cover picture on this  pocket-sized paperback by Redemptorist biblical scholar Denis McBride.

The prose musings that accompany the varied characters in the paintings are laid out as “lazily and extravagantly” as poetry, in order, says the author, to slow down the reader, and aid reflection
