Dr. Clyde Kilby was known to many as an early, long and effective champion of C. S. Lewis, and the founder of the Marion E. Wade Center at Wheaton College, IL, for the study of the works of Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and other members of the Inklings. Less known is that Dr. Kilby was also an apologist in his time for arts, aesthetics and beauty, particularly among Evangelicals.
In The Arts and the Christian Imagination, readers are offered a collection of essays that serve as a sampler of Kilby's work on these themes. The reflections contained within fall under four headings: "Christianity, Art, and Aesthetics"; "The Vocation of the Artist"; "Faith and the Role of the Imagination"; and "Poetry, Literature and the Imagination."
With a unique voice and timeless wisdom, Kilby writes from a specific literary and philosophical context that relates art and aesthetics with beauty, and all that is embodied in the classics. His work is particularly relevant today as these topics are being embraced by Protestants, Evangelicals, and indeed people of faith from many different traditions. For readers who want to look more closely at the themes of art, aesthetics, beauty and literature in the context of faith, The Arts and the Christian Imagination provides a deeply engaging and profound touchstone.
