Product Description

The 2006 Wheaton Theology Conference explored a wide-ranging Christian approach to divine beauty and the earthly arts. Written and illustrated by artists and theologians, these essays illuminate for us the Christian significance of the visual arts, music and literature, as well as sounding forth the theological meaning and place of the arts in a fallen world--fallen, yet redeemed by Christ. A veritable feast for pastors, artists, theologians and students eager to consider the profound but not necessarily obvious connection between Christianity and the arts.

Publisher's Description

God. Beauty. Art. Theology. Editors Mark Husbands, Roger Lundin and Daniel J. Treier present ten essays from the 2006 Wheaton Theology Conference that explore a Christian approach to beauty and the arts. Theology has much to contribute in providing a place for the arts in the Christian life, and the arts have much to contribute to the quality of Christian life, worship and witness. The 2006 Wheaton Theology Conference explored a wide-ranging Christian approach to divine beauty and the earthly arts. Written and illustrated by artists and theologians, these essays illuminate for us the Christian significance of the visual arts, music and literature, as well as sounding forth the theological meaning and place of the arts in a fallen world--fallen, yet redeemed by Christ. Here is a veritable feast for pastors, artists, theologians and students eager to consider the profound but not necessarily obvious connection between Christianity and the arts.

    July 1, 2008
    Elizabeth Hostetter
    As a music professor at a Christian college, I ordered this book for our college library. I found it very stimulating and especially useful for the Christian college student and/or scholar. It is wide in scope, covering music, visual art, and literature, and makes a strong case for the Christian artist to be engaged in the secular arts culture in a postive way, rather than exclusionist. I initially thought I would be primarily interested in the essays regarding music. However, I found the essays regarding the visual arts the most stimulating. For those who limit theology and arts to the narrow confines of "Christian music" or syrupy art of the sort you find in Christian bookstores, this book is not for you. I applaud Wheaton College for having a conference of this scope and importance. Based on the declining appreciation for the arts in our churches, I would recommend that this book could even be a thoughtful study for small groups in the church who are interested in reclaiming art for the church and society.
