For a theologian today to draw attention to beauty is a kind of protest about things as they seem, and an act of hope for what will be – that 'the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea', etc. Thank you Jim for your attending to such things.

Thank you Jim for this. It is not easy for someone with an idea of the aesthetic to survive in an evangelical setting. Beauty is the air that most artists breathe and at times I have felt suffocated by the lack of attention given to this very subject. Having to find food for the soul in other areas outwit the evangelical sphere. Another book on the subject that I found helpful is Roger Scrutons little book "Beauty"
