Product Description

Resonant Witness: Conversations Between Music and Theology gathers together a wide, harmonious chorus of voices from across the musical and theological spectrum to show that music and theology can each learn much from the other - and that the majesty and power of both are profoundly amplified when they do.

With essays touching on J. S. Bach, Hildegard of Bingen, Martin Luther, Karl Barth, Olivier Messiaen, jazz improvisation, South African freedom songs, and more, this volume encourages musicians and theologians to pursue a more fruitful and sustained engagement with one another.

Editorial Reviews

Academy of Parish ClergyTop Ten Books for Parish Ministry (2012)

Bennett Zon
— Durham University
"What can theology do for music? Resonant Witness helps answer this question with an essential resource in the burgeoning interdisciplinary field of music and theology. Covering an impressively wide range of musical topics, from cosmos to culture and theology to worship, Jeremy Begbie and Steven Guthrie explore and map new territory with incisive contributions from the very best musicians, theologians, and philosophers."

John D. Witvliet (from afterword)
"This volume represents a burst of cross-disciplinary energy and insight that can be celebrated by musicians and theologians, music-lovers and God-lovers alike."

Pastoral Music
"A resolute exploration of these essays will be generously rewarded as gradually we come to deeper and wider understanding of music as a resonant witness to theology."

Christian Librarian
"This collection of essays provides insights on a wide range of topics and offers a rich resource for musicians and theologians alike. The thought-provoking essays are well documented and indexed and a glossary of musical terms is included. This book is highly recommended."

Doxology
"I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the rich relationship between music and theology."

Themelios
"This volume provides a valuable read for both academic and practical interest in the intersection of theology and music."

Christianity Today
"Certain subjects are more likely than other to provide strong disagreement. . . . When you bring music and theology together, the combination is particularly combustible. Jeremy Begbie, who has done more than any other scholar to move this conversation forward, and co-editor Steven Guthrie have assembled a stellar cast of contributors. A good place to begin is the superb afterword by John Witvliet, followed by the editor's introduction. Then pick an essay at random and plunge in."
