Pictures at a Theological Exhibition

Full Product Description

Many Christians are held captive by a picture of the imagination as a purveyor of false images, prone to idolatry. We live in a society fixated on images that have little or no significance. We are surrounded by models of the world that are not in touch with any truth outside of themselves. But we lack the resources to see and imagine things differently.

Kevin Vanhoozer calls the church to a more biblical and premodern picture, one that sees every particular person, thing and event in the light of God's act of reconciling the world to himself in Christ. Through essays on the church's worship, witness and wisdom, Vanhoozer shows us how a poetic imagination can answer the questions of life's meaning by drawing our attention to what really matters: the God of the gospel.

Pictures at a Theological Exhibition by Kevin J. Vanhoozer was published by IVP in May 2016 and is our 13442nd best seller. The ISBN for Pictures at a Theological Exhibition is 9781783594269.
