Tom Graffagnino has recently released “Wilderness to Water” (published by Xlibris), a fully colored art book featuring his original works of art and writings. The artist/author has been exhibited in galleries and museums across the United States, including New York, Philadelphia, Washington and Atlanta. With the publication of this art book, he makes his creations available to more people.

“Wilderness to Water” was inspired by transformative episodes in Graffagnino’s life and faith, one of which was the passing of his wife of 36 years, Ann. Graffagnino shares that he experienced the magnitude of God’s grace and faithfulness during this time of pain and adversity. This collection gives voice to the fear and doubt that are almost inevitable in moments of tragedy but, above all, they shine with the powerful message that God’s love and grace never wavers. Graffagnino hopes that others will also discover the same light that he experienced.

Gary R. Habermas, research professor from the Liberty University & Theological Seminary, has praised “Wilderness to Water,” saying:

“The mixture of poignant, deep thoughts and devotional ideas has always been one of Tom’s quite apparent strengths. This book of words, drawings, and photos brings the reader along through the wilderness of losing a spouse and the religious doubts that were spawned as a result, to emerging out the other side only to bask in the glories of God, culminating in the contemplation of heaven’s splendors. I recommend this stimulating journey of introspection, from grief to eternity.”
