The Iconoclastic Deity: Biblical Images of God
This book explores the meanings of images, with particular reference to the images of God found in the Bible, and surveys the various images found. It critically reviews theories of images, as distinguished from symbols, and argues that images are more forceful representations of the deity than are symbols.
