Through media as diverse as literature, poetry, dance, iconography, sculpture and music, the theologians and artists contributing to this volume articulate how the Incarnation provides the perfect template for the ways art can convey meaning, ''awakening the mind's attention from the lethargy of custom and directing it to the loveliness and the wonders of the world before us'' (S.T. Coleridge). The arts can share in the task of all redemptive human endeavor of restoring wholeness to our many fractured worlds.
An Eighth Day View:
"A fine collection of probing and imaginative discussions on the relation between the Incarnation and the arts." -Nicholas Wolterstorff, Yale Divinity School
