Norma Boeckler's Fourth Book - Religious Art

Order Religious Art here.


Norma Boeckler's fourth art book has just been published through Amazon - Religious Art.

This her Facebook page for art - Norma Boeckler's Art.

Norma Boeckler's website is a convenient place to order her prints and original art.



I admit to getting Norma started on the computer. When I took Photoshop at Glendale Community College, a professional artist was taking the class. His artistic skill was ideal for the Photoshop program, and his classroom examples made us gape in awe.

Norma Boeckler became a member of our congregation, and we saw how artistic she was. I encouraged her to learn Dreamweaver and Photoshop, so she took tutorials and began showing what a Christian artist could do.

Everyone enjoys Norma's daily offerings on Facebook. The number of works is staggering, so now people have a chance to own many of them in a printed book or as a Kindle ebook.

The books is divided into two main sections. The first part illustrates Biblical verses, which are included for each artwork. I have enjoyed seeing them as they developed. Many have been featured on this blog or in various books I put together.

The Last Supper, p. 30.

Part 2 of the book features Norma Boeckler's hymn illustrations. Bethany Lutheran Church may be  alone in featuring The Lutheran Hymnal and illustrating the great hymns with art.

Norma selects the well known and the less famous hymns. I teach a graduate class in web tools for educators. I argue that the content plus illustration makes the idea lasting in our minds. This book proves the value.


Norma Boeckler has so many contributions that I can only indicate a few. Readers know how much she continues to do on a daily basis.

This is the idea - she loves art, and everyone appreciates her unusual gifts and her expressions of Christian faith.
