Many modes of religious expression and experience have a markedly aesthetic component, even though aesthetic delight itself often appears to be free of moral or religious interests. In this ground-breaking work, Frank Burch Brown shows how aesthetics, no less than ethics, can play a central role in the study of religion and in the practice of theology.


"A serene, beautiful, and enlarging book."--John Drury, Journal of Theological Studies

"[One] would be hard pressed to enter into the theology and arts discussion . . . without heeding the insights of this study."--Wilson Yates, Theology Today

"A profoundly useful book that should set the stage for future discussion in this important area of theology and culture."--Lawrence S. Cunningham, Commonweal

"An important book, wide ranging, often very witty, refreshingly undogmatic in its approach to both art and religion, and showing an impressive grasp of the current state of aesthetics and possible new directions."--Nick Mcadoo, British Journal of Aesthetics
