A Blossom in the Desert
Reflections of Faith in the Art and Writings of Lilias Trotter
Publication Date: December 2007
Lilias Trotter spent forty years sharing the gospel of Christ with the Arab people of Algeria. During that time, she kept diaries and journals and wrote a body of devotional literature. As a gifted artist, she painted and sketched beautiful watercolors and drawings along with her personal and published writings. These images and writings document the inner as well as the outward events of her life. Francis Bacon wrote: "God has two textbooks-Scripture and Creation-we would do well to listen to both. Lilias listened to and observed both, leaving to us this rich legacy of faith in her art and writings.
