Much more than a book about art & architecture, this book will enrich your faith and fill you with awe. Discover beauty, art, and architecture’s connection to theology and worship. Let pastor and scholar Hughes Oliphant Old be your guide through Scripture and history as you experience the deeper implications of art in the service of worship. Understand “beauty as reflection of divine greatness,” see how prayer and the Lord’s Table have impacted design and shaped the way churches have been built. Be introduced to Van Gogh, Albrecht Durer and Rembrandt in a whole new way. As Christ is God in the flesh, art and architecture in Church history have embodied theology and spoken eloquently of God’s glory, truth, sacrifice and power.
