A unique and visually artistic presentation of a Christian allegory, telling the story of an inwardly impoverished man and the encounter that transforms him. The story and typography were done by Ralph Mattson (1933-2018), who in 1970 co-founded The Master's School in West Simsbury, Connecticut, and served as its first headmaster. He was a graduate of both the Pratt Institute and Harvard. Throughout the sixties he taught art at Farmington High School and during this time was awarded the Connecticut Teacher of the Year Award.

The illustrations were done by Steve Hawley (b. 1950), one of Mattson's former art students. Hawley graduated from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston ('72), where he later taught. He has also taught at Tufts University and The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. His work has been exhibited across the United States and his paintings are held in the permanent collections of several notable institutions, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Smithsonian Museum of American Art.
