State of the art: success and failure in current Christian fiction and poetry. When piety is engrafted upon woman's loveliness, I know of nothing so lovely.

The cross as an aesthetic object and as a means of devotion corresponds to the mystery of God's wisdom and power manifest in. Few, if any, other theologians could have written The Beauty of the Infinite: The Aesthetics of Christian elegance of its style and the sophistication of its arguments are backed by knowledge of languages ancient and modern, familiarity with secular philosophies of the last third of the twentieth century, and a deep commitment to classic Christianity.

Appreciation for beauty is a consistent theme throughout the Bible. The Bible also has a full-orbed doctrine of beauty. Thus, beauty for beauty's sake is not addressed. The Old Testament Scriptures are particularly appreciative of nature. The Christian life is not simply “Yes” (it is a ‘yes’), but there is also “No,” for some things are so opposed to divine love that they must be completely avoided.

In the same way that a father who loves his children will necessarily refuse to mock and abuse them, so the Christian who truly “walks in love” (v.

A sufficient reason why Christianity is the worst religion is aesthetic in flavour, picking up on Nietzsche’s psychological critique of Christian resentment.

Nietzsche wasn’t interested in whether Christian beliefs are true, since for him all truth is subjective, reflecting the will to power. The Beauty of the Infinite is a splendid extended essay in "theological aesthetics." David Bentley Hart here meditates on the power of a Christian understanding of beauty and sublimity to rise above the violence -- both philosophical and literal -- characteristic of the postmodern : $ Aesthetic Piety, Or, the Beauty and Loveliness of the Christian Religion avg rating — 0 ratings — published — 7 editions Want to Read saving /5(5).

David Bentley Hart is a convert to Eastern Orthodoxy with a recent Ph.D. in theology from the University of Virginia. This volume, his first book, is a much-revised form of his dissertation.

Given the scope of its references and sheer intellectual flair, I can think of no more brilliant work by an American theologian in the past ten years—a remarkable beginning for a theological career. But. The book is a collection of essays on aesthetics and Catholic religion, divided into five eminently readable parts.

In Part One, “From Ideology to Humanism,” Wolfe describes the redemptive value. His book exhibits all that one might expect from an erudite aesthetic theologian who is concerned with the affective potency of his words and wishes to display the aesthetics of Christian truth.

The Christian is the only one capable of truly comprehending what is missing in Bacon’s work. Without a Christian base, we would have to look at the paintings and admit man’s “true” destiny, i.e., extinction, along with the rest of the cosmos.

But as Christians we can and must resist this message, because it is a lie. Theological aesthetics is the theory or view of beauty in relation to God, including how the senses bear on or contribute to matters of faith. It has a long and important tradition in all forms of Christian faith, since this faith affirms that God is beautiful and therefore desirable.

Some of Western civilization’s greatest works of art are housed in the Vatican Museums. Museum benefactors say that part of their mission is to promote “evangelism through beauty.” 1 Thus, they are expressing an aesthetic argument that can be made for God’s existence.

One way to frame this argument is to reason that God’s existence provides the best explanation for the world’s beauty.The audio edition of this book can be downloaded via Audible. The Beauty of the Cross Viladesau focuses on poetry and the visual arts as he seeks to understand 'The Beauty of the Cross' as it developed in theology and art from the early Christian era through the middle ages.

The natural form of piety is goodness, morality, living a true, just, affectionate, self-faithful life, from the motive of a pious man. Real piety, love of God, if left to itself, assumes the form of real morality, loyal obedience to God's law.

Thus the power of religion does the work of religion, and is not merely to feed itself.
