Working in rural Alabama for seven years, Myrtice West painted the entire book of Revelation in 13 large, vivid paintings. West's "Revelation Series," exhibited in public only twice, is the subject of this acclaimed book featuring essays by 17 renowned scholars and artists, including Ben Apfelbaum, Howard Finster, George Fowler, Miriam Fowler, Norman Girardot, Rebecca Hoffberger, Lee Kogan, Norbert Kox, Leslie Luebbers, Roger Manley, Ann Oppenhimer, Tom Patterson, Charles Rosenak, Gary Schwindler, Charles Reagan Wilson, and Benjamin Wright.

The definitive work on Myrtice West and apocalypticism among self-taught artists, Wonders to Behold will appeal to everyone fascinated by visionary and outsider art, Southern Christian fundamentalism, and the furor over the new millennium.
