Summary:
Farley (theology, Vanderbilt U.) offers in this slim volume a satisfyingly profound exegesis on the question of beauty's relation to faith within the Christian tradition. No stranger to contemporary theory, and well versed in philosophy, Farley writes from a Christian perspective as he examines faith and beauty's tumultuous relationship to build a case for the innate presence of the divine within the beautiful.
