The #1 New York Times-bestselling author of The Kite Runner, A Thousand Splendid Suns, and And the Mountains Echoed responds to the heartbreak of the current refugee crisis with this deeply moving, beautifully illustrated short work of fiction for people of all ages, all over the world. "Intensely moving. . .Powerfully evocative of the plight in which displaced populations find themselves."– Kirkus, STARRED Review "Hosseini's story, aimed at readers of all ages, does not dwell on nightmarish fates; instead, its emotional power flows from the love of a father for his son."– Publishers Weekly, STARRED BOX Review A short, powerful, illustrated book written by beloved novelist Khaled Hosseini in response to the current refugee crisis, Sea Prayer is composed in the form of a letter, from a father to his son, on the eve of their journey. Watching over his sleeping son, the father reflects on the dangerous sea-crossing that lies before them. It is also a vivid portrait of their life in Homs, Syria, before the war, and of that city's swift transformation from a home into a deadly war zone. Impelled to write this story by the haunting image of young Alan Kurdi, the three-year-old Syrian boy whose body washed upon the beach in Turkey in September 2015, Hosseini hopes to pay tribute to the millions of families, like Kurdi's, who have been splintered and forced from home by war and persecution, and he will donate author proceeds from this book to the UNHCR (the UN Refugee Agency) and The Khaled Hosseini Foundation to help fund lifesaving relief efforts to help refugees around the globe. Khaled Hosseini is one of the most widely read writers in the world, with more than fifty-five million copies of his novels sold worldwide in more than seventy countries. Hosseini is also a Goodwill Envoy to the UNHCR, and the founder of The Khaled Hosseini Foundation, a nonprofit that provides humanitarian assistance to the people of Afghanistan.

"JESUS CHRIST & THE VIRGIN MARY IN ART: A VISUAL PRAYER BOOK & ART ANTHOLOGY" is a distinctive new religious art book. It is a stunning 334 page 9" by 11" hardcover printed on 70 lb. bright white glossy paper which totally enhances the true colors of each marvelous painting. This comprehensive collection of 280 incredible oil paintings truly becomes a strong personal conduit for reflection and compelling inspiration for an intimate closeness with Jesus Christ and The Virgin Mary. Readers will learn about the life and art career of 36 master religious artists, their distinctive art styles, historic perspective and enjoy many of their finest religious artwork created from 1200 A.D. to the early 1900's A.D. It is as much an interesting learning experience in art history, distinctive painting styles and historic perspective as it is a heartening study of important religious artwork and creating a new channel to reaching God. The creation of this book began with a goal of producing a stunning visual anthology of the best artwork--some rarely seen---of the most talented religious artists including El Greco, Giotto, Caravaggio, Raphael, Rubens, Duccio, Angelico, Bellini, Grünewald, Botticelli, Bosch, Mantegna, Van der Weyden and many more and encouraging a VISUAL meditational focus on the paintings while praying or reflecting. Traditional, centuries-old Christian Meditation involves reading bible passages, and fervently reciting prayers to reach a meditative state. This VISUAL PRAYER BOOK takes Christian Meditation to a new beautiful sensory level by combining the focusing of all our senses on the vivid images while praying--all leading to a stronger channel to absorb the love and strength of Jesus and The Virgin Mary and allows our being to be totally one with the painting. The 280 oil paintings are presented as a "window" or a "meeting place" of our mind and soul between ourselves and God. We hope that readers may find a capacity to move through and beyond to "contact" God in a direct, personal way-- creating a time of communion in which you may be inspired, healed, reconciled, challenged, and nourished. Meditating with art---particularly religious art--is a practical devotional tool that is highly portable. The presence and strength of God is all around us, all the time. The creativity of these spiritual paintings powerfully reaches us throughout our being. What emerges from the artist touches the viewer. The viewer opens to the spiritual realities the image presents. The image unites the artist and the viewer----and GOD AND OUR SPIRITUALITY IS AT THE CENTER. Here is what noted art historian, best-selling art author and PBS host of art history broadcasts; Sister Wendy Beckett once observed: "I knew that if we really looked at all spiritual religious art, we would see that it draws us into something greater than ourselves, something beyond, something other... .. -- AND THAT SOMETHING IS GOD!" The Voice of God is often "heard" through image rather than sound. Hidden within the silent metaphors of artistic impressions, whispers of the Holy Spirit can be recognized and sensed. This section of Oasis dedicated to meditating with art, strives to distinguish these whispers in an atmosphere of artistic beauty and solitude. "Every genuine art form -especially paintings---in its own way is a path to the inmost reality of man and of the world. It is therefore a wholly valid approach to the realm of faith, which gives human experience its ultimate meaning." Candace Loheed said "Resting the mind can be accomplished by meditation, and also by artwork, which allows the intuition to flow: the conscious mind recedes. Meditation and artwork at their best complement each other, and true things emerge." This book truly brings together the appreciation of beautiful religious artwork and its importance in reaching a closer to connection to God by focusing on the artwork and praying.
