Overview

Drawing from six living faiths, this book philosophically analyzes relations between art and religion in order to explain how the concepts "art," "beauty," "creativity," and "aesthetic experience" find their place or counterparts in religious discourse and experience.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Coleman (philosophy and religious studies) examines applied, fine, and folk arts to find points of coalescence between them and Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, and Taoism. He looks first at ideas expressed in religious classics, then at statements by well known artists, and finally at theories about the link in such fields as theology and psychology. Among his themes are the varieties of union, the child as a paradigm, and the aesthetic and spiritual as cognate categories. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

    Highly Recommended

    I really enjoyed this book. So many books on related topics tend to be cliched and lack substance. Coleman's observations are uniquely poignant, intellectual and insightful without being too dense or dry.
