Item description for Toward Theology of Beauty by John Navone...

Overview
Christian theology, based on the historical revelation that God is the Creator of all things, assumes that we can know the truth, love the goodness, and delight in the beauty of all things because the Creator first knows and loves and delights in all creation. In Toward a Theology of Beauty, Father Navone explains that the Creator, Happiness Itself, knows truth and loves goodness and delights in beauty; consequently, whatever proceeds from the Creator-all creation-is knowable, lovable, and enjoyable. We can therefore see the Creator in the truth and goodness and beauty of all things, and we can have communion with Happiness Itself in knowing and loving and delighting in all things. Father Navone uses basic points of reference, such as divine revelation and Jesus' farewell discourse, to explore a theology of beauty. Chapters are "Creation and the Beauty of All Things," "In the Image and Likeness of Beauty Itself," "The Power of Beauty," "Beauty: God's Delight," "In the Light of God's Beauty," "The Christian Experience of Beauty," and "Theology of Beauty: RTsumT of Presuppositions." All those interested in the Catholic tradition's approach to the splendor/glory of the divine beauty in human life will find this book rewarding. It communicates a theological appreciation of our graced ability to contemplate the divine beauty in all things. Toward a Theology of Beautyeads us to the joy of Christian contemplation-to delight in the splendor of the divine love in all things.

Reviews - What do customers think about Toward Theology of Beauty?

Refocusing on Beauty  Apr 12, 2000
Written prior to his 1999 book Enjoying the Beauty of God, this book serves as an informative introduction to the later work. John Navone introduces the reader to the subject of beauty within the Christian world and outlines the theological presuppositions necessary to develop a more complete theology of beauty for the contemporary church. Navone's style is at times confusing when refering to God/beauty/Beauty Itself etc. however, the overall tone of the book is both interesting and authoratative. Of particular value to the lay reader concerned with the subject of beauty within the Christian west, and the value of the recovery of beauty in contemporary belief. In chapter seven of this work Navone outlines the presuppositions that are necessary for a deeper formulation of a theology of beauty. This inclusion is very helpful. This book is what it purports to be - not an exhaustive treatise on beauty but a necessary prerequisite for further study and reflection. That Navone's book is followed in 1999 by Enjoying God's Beauty is not a surprise but a fitting conclusion to this book.
