Art and the Beauty of God: A Christian Understanding
In recent centuries, with the notable exception of Hans Urs von Balthasar, Christian theology has failed to find a proper place for beauty. The Bishop of Oxford, Richard Harries, shows how a biblical faith can give a key place to beauty, and he argues for a distinctively Christian approach to art that is also sensitive to the spiritual dimension in all art.
Originally published in 1993, Art and the Beauty of God was selected by Anthony Burgess as his book of the year. This reprinted edition makes Harries eloquent study available again.
