Janet has brought together the heart of one passionate for truth, the skill of an able student of the Word, and the keen eye and hand of an artist. After a thorough search and study of each of the passages in the Bible, that deal with the future City of God, Janet has collated those Scriptures into a systematic theology of what the Scriptures itself says about the future city. The result is a unique examination of the details that are too often overlooked by people in their search for a description of the future. Her commitment to propositional revelation and the consistent interpretation of the Scriptures in the both Old and New Testaments brings the assurance of a study based on biblical facts.
But then as a skilled artist she is able to give us a portrait of what those details may look like. Looking at her careful illustrations, one sees, often for the first time, a rendering of what the Scriptures themselves describe. It is at once comprehensible, stunning, and changes your entire perspective about the eternal city. As I now read in God's Word about the eternal city, I am finally "able to imgaine it."
Janet's work is thorough without being overly technical, making it accessible to anyone who wants to be a better student or teacher of the Bible. She has done the church a wonderful service.
