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.

Editorial Reviews

This is an exciting and valuable contribution to the dialogue between theology and the arts that takes sin and suffering seriously, even as it highlights the excessive love of God that shines through. It should be welcomed by theologians and practitioners alike. -- John W. Nelson, Religious Studies Review, June 2008

The Beauty of God explores the profound beauty of the earthly arts and how they can be used in ministry and fellowship with others.Daniel J. Treier, ed. Nov. 07 Worship Leader -- Worship Leader, November 2007
