Pressestimmen"Are God and beauty on speaking terms with one another? Does theology have a place for aesthetics, or does Christianity's historic polemic against 'idols' and 'graven images' render it indifferent (or even hostile) toward art in general and figural representations of God in particular? In three elegantly crafted essays on God and beauty, leading-edge theologians John Milbank, Graham Ward, and Edith Wyschogrod make the case for a new appreciation of the beautiful as the primary mode of God's self-disclosure in the world. Discerning the beautiful in the good creation God has made entails making of one's life a work of art. To apprehend the beautiful in God is to become beautiful in oneself and for others. Philosophically rich and biblically resonant, this challenging volume boldly rethinks the complicated relationship between God and beauty with erudition, insight, and originality." Mark I. Wallace, Associate Professor of Religion, Swarthmore College--Sanford Lakoff
