Product Description

This book takes a look at an inviting topic that has come into increasing prominence in a number of fields lately--including theology. Theology and the Arts explores, in a timely and engaging manner, several aspects of the relations between theology and aesthetics, in both the pastoral and academic realms. The underlying motif of this work is that beauty is a means of divine revelation, and that art is the human meditation that both enables and limits its revelatory power.

Publisher's Description

Using examples from music, pictorial art and rhetoric, this book explores different aspects of the ways that art enters into theology and theology into art, both in pastoral practice (liturgical music, sacred art and preaching) and in the realm of systematic reflection, where, the author contends, art must be recognized as a genuine theological text.
