Item Description...
Although the arts have played a significant role in both world history and Christian history, the contemporary church has often shunned them in favor of a more intellectual approach to theology. Beholding the Glory argues the necessity of renewing an engagement between theology and the arts. Specifically focusing on the incarnation, the book shows how the arts have an indispensable role to play in disclosing God's wisdom. With an introduction by the editor, the book consists of eight essays written by practicing artists (a sculptor, poet, dancer, and musician), theologians, and professors--all well-versed in the relationship between imagination and theology. Beholding the Glory would be an appropriate text for humanities courses as well as theological courses that stress a multifaceted approach to Christian doctrine.

Publishers Description
"A fine collection of probing and imaginative discussions on the relation between the Incarnation and the arts." -Nicholas Wolterstorff, Yale Divinity School

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Theology Through the Arts  Feb 6, 2007
This is a fantastic application of 'Theology Through The Arts' to the doctrine of the incarnation. If you are looking for a theology of the arts, look elsewhere. Within these few pages you will find artists and scholars using art as a medium to make observations on the doctrine of the incarnation. Trevor Hart's opening chapter on theology through the arts alone makes the purchase worthwhile. Jeremy Begbie's insights in his chapter on music will change the way ministers preach on Trinity Sunday. It's an introductory level work, so I strongly encourage you to pick it up and discover how the arts can change the way you think about theology.
