Faces: A Love Story is an inspirational picture book for people of all ages featuring a simple text and full-color face illustrations of those we might see in our neighborhood, in the office or school, in the grocery store, on the playground, or on the street. Faces reflecting the image of God. Faces that remind us of our diversity and the stories we tell through colors, shapes, scars, ages, and expressions, now more than ever as we live in quarantine. And when life returns to normal, faces we cherish more than ever did before.

Roger Hutchison

Artist and author Roger Hutchison is the Director of Christian Formation and Parish Life at Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church in Houston, Texas. His first book, The Painting Table: A Journal of Loss and Joy, has been used by people of all ages in schools, churches, and community groups across the United States. Roger's second book, Under the Fig Tree: Visual Prayers and Poems for Lent (2015) has been released to rave reviews. He had the privilege of painting with children who had witnessed the tragic shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, CT. The experience affected him profoundly and convinced him of a vocation to use his writing and art to serve those who grieve.

"Roger Hutchison's enchanting little book encourages us to look afresh at the 'human face divine' (as John Milton called it) and reminds us that sometimes we can glimpse God's image shining through the faces around us, and that one day, when we no longer see 'through a glass darkly,' we will all see one another, and our Saviour, 'face to face.'" -- Malcolm Guite, poet, priest, singer/songwriter

"Roger Hutchison has given us a gift, a beautiful, hopeful gift for children of all ages. Faces: A Love Story is a celebration of humanity-a colorful and diverse picture book full of life. Every page sings, offering us not only a tale about ourselves but a detailed holy story about our imaginative and creative God." -- Matthew Paul Turner, author of When God Made You and When I Pray for You

"Faces is a glorious celebration of humanity through a diverse collection of beautiful portraits. We need more books like this to help our children-and us-remember that each one of us is part of the Divine image just exactly as we are." --Daneen Akers, author of Holy Troublemakers & Unconventional Saints

"Lyrical and visually arresting, Faces: A Love Story invites us to notice and appreciate the image of the Divine in every other person. The rich colors, variety of artistic styles and motifs, and diverse cast of characters that author/illustrator Roger Hutchison has created result in a gorgeous celebration of difference." --Jennifer Grant, author of A Little Blue Bottle

"Faces: A Love Story, speaks to me as a child of God that struggles to love herself as God made her. God created me and all of us after God's own heart. As a black woman and a mother of a black son, I am reminded that God is here-even when we are afraid and treated as less than. God did not create these divisions. This book is a warm hug for humanity!" -Marlo Adjankara
