Five Solas

Five Solas


This is a two-piece set depicting the "Five Solas" of the Reformation. These five statements from the Reformation are lettered in the Fractur style, with capital gold letters. Behind each statement are supporting Scriptures lettered in Spencerian Engrosser's Script. The prints are each 10x20 in size. They  are giclee prints with light fast ink on high quality acid free paper.

  • Behind the Art

    This set of two prints was commissioned by Redeemer Presbyterian Church in  McKinney, Texas. They were significantly larger than 10x20, were printed on canvas, were mounted on stretcher bars, and were hung on either side of a doorway in the church. I counted it a privilege to letter these Scriptural truths for them.

    Sola Scriptura

    II Timothy 3:16-17

    All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

    Sola Gratia

    John 1:1-4

    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.

        be praise and honor and glory and power,
    for ever and ever!”


    Soli Deo Gloria

    So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
