The observations below are just my personal. subjective reactions to the page which may have have nothing to do with Knox’s thoughts and ideas.

The Archibald Knox Forum would like to hear from any of you who have thoughts, ideas and/or observations regarding any pages of the Deer’s Cry.

The “I” is seen in the earthly colours of the outer design and is also part of the rich dark blue heavenly realm. The “H” of heaven seems to have rungs, like a ladder from earth to heaven, if you will – Jesus’s role in being the way from  earth to heaven.
