Karen Stone provides a theological and aesthetic background for a view of art as visible Word - as embodiment of the transcendent. Geared to the non-speacilist, the book develops the reader's ability to interpret and appreciate artworks, of any style and from any period, from a spiritual perspective. The book also explores the communal aspect of art as a prophetic Word that challenges, mobilizes. and sensitizes the Christian community; and as a pastoral Word which enriches the spiritual and aesthetic journey.
