The Image Of Christ In Modern ArtMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
This really is a beautiful book for anyone interested in Art and theology, and how Art and Artists show and demonstrate the thoughts and feelings of their time, how artists reflect the zeitgeist of culture.
This book really shows how through the changing styles we can see a reflection of the changing dynamics of theology through studying how the art that portraits the Image of Christ changed and is changing.
Richard Harries has done a grand job of highlighting artists that juxtapose each other and reflect the changing dynamics of both art as a subject but also social theological reflection. The images in the book are not large but are well worth looking at and really reflecting on, and the background to the artists, the time in which they were working, and the particular art images being represented is very good and quite thorough - as is the overview consideration of how these work within the christian theological narratives of the time.
This book is one just for people that love art, but it is also an almost essential reference tool for anyone that would like to incorporate more imagery within their pastoral work... in my mind an almost essential book for schools, youth workers or ministers of any denomination to have on their shelves.
