The creation of spiritual paintings and icons goes back centuries, to a time before general literacy. Even to this day, an artist is instructed to “write an icon” rather than paint one, because it preaches the Word of God to the seeker. It is in this spiritual tradition that we encounter the living Word.
Garden of Grace is a collection of 66 paintings depicting each book of the Bible, which emerged out of a spiritual journey taken by artist, Mindi Oaten. These paintings inspire reflection of God’s continued grace in Christ Jesus from Genesis to Revelation. The full fragrance of the Garden of Eden wafts through each frame, climaxing in the bouquet for the bride of Christ. Though challenged by sin, death, persecution and loss, grace remains present as each flower appears along the journey from the Fall to our final redemption.
The prophetic paintings invite the Holy Spirit to activate your imagination. By exploring the scriptures behind the symbols, the living Word speaks truth.

Garden of Grace is a unique & beautiful way to meditate on God's Word. Each painting captures an overview of every book of the Bible, paired with a poetic response, a short synopsis of the book and a meditative prayer. As you linger, smell the fragrance of the garden along the journey as you get to know our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. He longs to draw you back to the Garden...
"Garden of Grace" will grip your soul, reignite a love for God's Word, and allow you to newly gaze upon the beauty of the Lord. This timeless masterpiece should be passed down from generation to generation."
