Divine Generosity and Artistic Creativity

Full Product Description

David Brown is recognized worldwide as one of the leading British philosophical theologians. His recent work has turned to the arts, exploring theology in a wide range of human experience. This book presents a wide-ranging selection of re-edited essays by David Brown, with new introductions and concluding chapters by the author together with editorial orientation and introduction by the co-editors Christopher Brewer and Robert MacSwain. Over and against theologians who advocate an instrumental rationality, Brown argues for divine generosity rooted in an Incarnational logic. Less concerned with a theology of the arts, Brown instead seeks to explore theology in the arts. God is everywhere available, says Brown, and so artists might be theologians even if not Christian. Brown seeks to push logic via a broad sacramentality in an effort to reclaim human experience. This book presents four parts addressing the following themes: 1) Foundations, 2) The Power of Symbols, 3) Artists as Theologians, and 4) Meaning in Religious Architecture. In addition to encouraging dialogue between theology and the arts, Brown's discussion draws upon his earlier work in philosophical theology.
