Think of your local church. Without art--music, song, dance, etc.--it would be a much poorer place. But if protestants have any vision for the arts, it tends to be a thin one. This unique book is an attempt to contribute to a robust, expansive vision for the church and the arts. Its specific aim is to show how the many parts of the landscape of church and art hold together. You can think of it as a kind of helicopter flyover, but one with expert pilots. The guides include the likes of Eugene Peterson, Lauren Winner, Jeremy Begbie, Andy Crouch, and John Witvliet, helping to inspire readers and empower pastor-leaders with a vision of the church and the arts that is compelling, far-seeing, and profoundly transformative.

What does beauty have to do with healing the fragmentation within our churches? According to Michael Pasquarello, everything. Amid the cacophony of ugly political invective that dominates nearly every space today—including church—only God has the power to unify and heal through his truth and goodness, revealed in his beauty. And every Sunday, those in the pulpit have the opportunity and responsibility to share this beauty with their parishioners. Tapping into a long tradition that can be traced back to Augustine, Michael Pasquarello explores a theological definition of beauty that has tremendous revelatory power in a post-Christendom world. A church manifesting this beauty is not merely a gathering of people, but a place where God’s new creation appears in the midst of the old creation, ushered in by a pastor willing to make God the primary actor within the doxological craft of preaching.

This book examines what some of the most prominent voices of Christianity's distant past have taught about the Eucharist. The author's goal is to look at how the proponents of an emerging Christian orthodoxy understood, celebrated and presented the Eucharist in the centuries immediately following the end of the apostolic era. 'Dennis Billy has done a masterful job of exposing us to almost 600 years of Christian belief on the Eucharist as reflected in the Fathers of the Church. He reminds us that this living faith of the dead is part of our heritage, something that we ignore only at our peril and loss. His writing is clear, practical and his treatment of each Father consistent. He helps us to see how each writer adds to the mosaic and richness of our Eucharistic faith. Especially helpful are the reflection questions that end each chapter, as these force readers to plumb the depth of their own understanding and faith and to examine how the Eucharist affects the whole of their Christian lives. I recommend it highly. (Paul Bernier, Editor, Emmanuel Magazine).

It includes 15 essays - by Roman Catholic, Orthodox, and Anglican scholars from Russia, Finland, Greece, Poland, Spain, Wales, and Ireland - on every aspect of divine beauty. God is Beauty, and thus the source of all beauty. The book considers the beauty of Christ as the image of the Father, the beauty of human beings who are made in that image, and the beauty of Christ-like lives. The essays span Christian history, from the Bible to the present day, demonstrating once again the enduring relevance of the Church fathers in every generation.

Science has its own language; the arts have another. Religion uses especially the language of the arts, for it uses signs and symbols, like bridges from the visible to the invisible, from the depths to the heights, from the earthly world to the heavenly one, from humanity to God. The symbol is not an object of worship, but invites to worship. It leads to the encounter with the divine. Its language takes an object or an action and from it evokes something other, which is often inexpressible, by virtue of some correspondence, natural association, or convention.--From publisher description.
