Item Description...
Overview
God's beauty is omnipresent, particularly in the Scriptures, in the liturgy, and in human friendship. In Enjoying God's Beauty, Father Navone discusses how to find God in the beauty of the world and in all of God's creation. The joy of seeing the beauty of God in our lives-"the eye of love" that is Christian faith and "the look of love" that is Christian contemplation beholding the Beloved in all things-is at the heart of Christian life. In Enjoying God's Beauty, Father Navone provides an overview of the Christian experience of God's beauty in all things. Enjoying God's Beauty focuses on three approaches to the Christian experience of beauty. The first approach to enjoying God's beauty follows the assumption that wherever there is Christian life, there is Christian vision and action. The second approach revolves around the Church's Scriptures. Father Navone focuses on the Church's invitation to contemplate in its scriptural iconography true images of God, ourselves, and the world. The third approach involves our experience of life in the Church. Father Navone focuses on the theologies of beauty of Thomas Aquinas and Jonathan Edwards based on their experience within the community of Christian faith. Finally, he examines the healing and integrating Spirit of God's love within the Church and the world and how it invites reflection on the universal scope of Beauty Itself (God). Just as there is no joy without love, there is no contemplation without beauty. In Enjoying God's Beauty, Father Navone shows that the power of beauty moves us to gaze with love upon the Beloved, an act in the Christian faith better known as contemplation.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A beautiful wisdom of a beautiful truth of beauty!  Sep 20, 2000
The most comprehensive work I've ever read in my life that gets into the very depth of human introspection about the wonder and splendor of reality is in John Navone's scholarly masterpiece! His use of the Sacred Scriptures and human experience is impeccably reflected in his original thinking that beauty is indeed the ground of life's meaning and triumph. Navone's mind is beautiful and everyone must read this book to believe it!
 
God is happiness itself  Apr 8, 2000
The origin and ground and destiny of all human life is happiness itself. We live for happiness. This book shows how beauty is the indispensable guide and light to happiness.

There is no human achievement or excellence that has not been motivated by the inspiration of beauty in one form or another.

Within all the joy-giving experiences of beauty we know something of Happiness itself, or God.

God is happiness itself.

This book is great; and it makes me happy! It made me see how God is Beauty and Happiness itself. Wonderful.
