Product Description

A beautifully illustrated and thought provoking introduction to what Christians believe about God as Trinity. Seeking to engage not only intellectual apprehension but through the use of beauty in image to engage the imagination through mystery, world renowned theologian Alister McGrath shows us a God who not only exists in beauty, but a God who wants and desires to know us personally.

This is a particularly good resource for artists who love God, or simply to use as a teaching tool in creative or church context. It includes pictures of art masterpieces from many artists including:

Daniel Bonnell's Pearl of Great Price
Klimt's The Kiss
Rembrandt's The Storm on the Sea of Galilee
Botticelli's Holy Trinity
Morazzone's Pentecost
William Blake's Moses and the Burning Bush
Rublev's Icon with the Trinity

And many more!!!

Publisher's Description

Gloriously illuminated by a series of fine art paintings, The Christian Vision of God is an ideal introduction to what Christians believe about the Trinity. Alister McGrath seeks to engage both the mind and the imagination as he focuses on the astounding, life-transforming truth that God wants to be known by us. Astute and informed, McGrath also models an earnest religious quest for the divine meaning and human import of Christian convictions as reflected in their development and in the artistic and literary treasures of the broader culture. Poetry, prayer, and theological reflection are interwoven with commentary on the ideas conveyed through works such as Daniel Bonnell's Pearl of Great Price, Klimt's The Kiss, Rembrandt's The Storm on the Sea of Galilee, Morazzone's Pentecost, William Blake's Moses and the Burning Bush, Botticelli's Holy Trinity and Rublev's Icon with the Trinity.

Author Bio
