In recent centuries, with the notable exception of Hans Urs von Balthasar, Christian theology has failed to find a proper place for beauty. Richard Harries shows how a biblical faith can give a key place to it, and he argues for a distinctively Christian approach to art which is also sensitive to the spiritual dimension in all art.

Richard Harries was Bishop of Oxford and is a popular speaker and broadcaster.

Review:

"'This is a highly sensible Everyman's introduction to religious aesthetics. It cannot be faulted in its attempt to find a view of beauty which fits most cultures...Highly readable, even convincing.' - Anthony Burgess, The Observer; '...jargon-free and intellectually accessible.' - Times Literary Supplement; '...an unusual and sensitive study...valuable and stimulating.' - Catholic Herald; 'He enables us to look with fresh eyes at art and beauty, and challenges us to relate to the depth of our religion.' - Church of England Newspaper; 'This is a book which will enrich many lives because it articulates the inchoate perceptions of many believers who know, deep down, that God is beautiful and that art says something significant about the way that beauty is understood.' - Church Times"
