Lucifer's Fall

Today's Reading: Isaiah 14-16 and Ephesians 5:1-16

The wood engraving above was done by French artist Gustave Doré (1832-1883) and included in John Milton's Paradise Lost. I have mentioned Doré on my blog before because he was such a talented artist.
If you're in the mood for a silly read then I also recommend the book 'A Wild Ride Through the Night' by Walter Moers, a German author who took engravings by Doré out of context, out of order, and devised a totally new story around them. Fun!

Isaiah 14:12 talks about Lucifer, "How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations!"
