Miriam, Your blog is masterful in every respect. I’ve shared it with friends in NE and hope that you will hear from them eventually. I’ve also made printed copy for Ginny H. Bravo! – Milford
A couple of years ago I was able to obtain copies of Parables of the Christ-Life and Parables of the Cross through the online bookseller, Alibris. What gems! I wish/hope/pray more of her works will be published one day.
To see her books reprinted is likewise a dream of mine. Glad you were able to locate the Parable books.
Her writings are life changing because they are living!

Thank you for your wonderful post – so rich in references and links – bringing attention to the life and legacy of Lilias Trotter! I so appreciate your “take” on Lilias as you “discover” her afresh – bringing back my early elation when I discovered her works. In the midst of many wonderful reprints of the Parable books, let me call to your attention the only true “facsimile” reprint by Oxvision: https://www.amazon.com/Facsimile-Parables-Cross-Lilias-Trotter/dp/1938068076/ref=sr_1_4?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1467911968&sr=1-4&keywords=parable+of+the+cross I think it well worth the price to see exactly how she aligned text with paintings – another remarkable “skill” of hers. Again, thank you for your post – and blessings on your continued writing! Miriam Rockness
Another book about Lilias Trotter is “Faithful women and their extraordinary God” by Noel Piper. It’s in print.
Yes, this is an excellent resource: highlights of IlT’s life in a chapter-size format – along with other inspirational women! Thank you for mentioning this. We will add it to our RESOURCES. Miriam Rockness
Hello, my name is Grant Trotter. (Same name, no known relation.) Recently I have been pondering Parables of the Cross at http://gutenberg.readingroo.ms/2/2/1/8/22189/22189-h/22189-h.htm
I have an idea to make a unique print of that book which would serve as both a devotional book and wall art. Just for my own household and perhaps a few friends. I’ll spare you the details of what I’m imagining. But I’m looking for high resolution photos of the paintings in that work. The highest resolution I’ve been able to find are the ones in the link above. I was content with that, but then I watched Many Beautiful Things and saw very large, crystal clear renderings of the paintings. So I learned that higher resolution copies are out there somewhere. I was wondering if you might be able to point me in the right direction?
Thank your dedicated work on this project and your consideration on this message.
Thank you for your query about high resolution prints from “Parables of the Cross”. I have searched, in vain, for the original color plates from POC. The paintings you see in MBT are taken from scans made directly from a 1st edition copy of POC. I think that the medium of film may have enhanced these images? Do you have any of the early copies of POC? You may have seen our (Lilias Trotter Legacy) facsimile edition published-on-demand by Amazon. This was the best we could offer. I don’t know if this is of an help to you. Miriam Rockness
Hi, my name is Karne McGary. I was wondering if you knew of any effort to republish Lilias’ Arabic tracts and stories? I am an artist very much inspired by her work, and my husband and I have been to Morocco for tent-making work. We also have other friends working in various countries in the Arab-speaking world. Ever since I read your biography of Lilias, I have wanted to see her tracts back in use.
My pastor’s wife is visiting the archives in May, and offered to make some copies for me, but I’m not sure what would be available or possible for her to do. Any help or advice would be so appreciated! Thank you.
Thank you, Karne, for your comments. You do have quite a “connection” to Lilias as an artist and with your work in North Africa. I’m delighted in your interest in the republication of her tracts. We actually do have plans to publish 8 of her Story Parables as a small collection. If you check out RESOURCES (Tools for Learning) in our liliastrotter.com website, you will find that collection printed in full. You are welcome to print them for you use as it will be several months before our copies are available. Where are the archives your friend is planning to visit? Wheaton College/Wheaton Special Collections or London? Wheaton has a number of these story-parables – more than we have put on-line. London University (which has the Arab World Ministries of Pioneers archives as deposit-on-loan) has an even more comprehensive collection. Should you wish to contact them check our website for Primary Repositories under RESOURCES. Again, thank your for your interest. Best blessings, Miriam Rockness
Thank you for the story parables! I’m excited to see them online, and to know that they will be republished. My friend is visiting the archives in London. Do you know if they would allow her to make copies or make copies themselves of the tracts and text cards written in Arabic? I’m particularly interested in those versions and in trying to reproduce them. Thank you so much for responding. In Him, Karne McGary
