The Artist And The Trinity. The Artist and the Trinity' aims to create a Christian theology of work based on Dorothy L. Sayers' analogy of the Trinity to the process of artistic creation. Sayers' analogy gives us an account of the person that does not collapse into the atomism of the individual of modern liberal capitalism, but is fully relational. By putting Sayers into dialogue with Alasdair MacIntyre, the book develops a fully Trinitarian theology of work that accounts for the interdependence of human beings, and for the ethical requirements of caring for the weak, the young, and the old in a way that is gender neutral.

The Preacher As Liturgical Artist. Trygve Johnson invites us to consider a new metaphor of identity of The Preacher as Liturgical Artist. This identity draws on a theology of communion and the doctrine of the vicarious humanity of Christ to relocate the preacher's identity in the creative and ongoing ministry of Jesus Christ. Johnson argues the metaphorical association of the preacher and artist understood within the artistic ministry of Jesus Christ frees the full range of human capacities, including the imagination to bear upon the arts of Christian proclamation. The Preacher as Liturgical Artist connects preachers to the person and work of Jesus Christ, whose own double ministry took the raw materials of the human condition and offered them back to the Father in a redemptive and imaginative fashion through the Holy Spirit. It is in the large creative ministry of Jesus Christ that preachers find their creativity freed to proclaim the gospel bodily within the context of the liturgical work of God's people.

Barb Of Fire. Elizabeth Catez, a Carmelite nun born in the late nineteenth century, loved God with an astonishing intensity. Alan Bancroft has created new and vivid translations of twenty poems published soon after her death, and shows how these poems interlock with the prose of the celebrated Benedictine Abbot Marmion. Barb of Fire is a fascinating synthesis of Carmelite and Benedictine spirituality.

Trinity And Salvation. This book gathers together the proceedings of the conference "Trinity and Salvation: Theological, Spiritual and Aesthetic Perspectives "held at the Milltown Institute of Theology and Philosophy, Dublin, in February 2008. The last few decades have seen a significant revival in Trinitarian theology. From being perceived as an esoteric and speculative doctrine, the Trinity is increasingly seen as a resource from which a variety of theological and spiritual themes can usefully be explored. As Karl Rahner remarked, if the Trinity is a mystery of salvation, it cannot be disconnected from Christian spirituality and faith. In this book the theology of the Trinity is discussed from contemplative, aesthetic and inter-religious perspectives. Such approaches are shown to be rooted in the Patristic and medieval tradition and continue to be prominent as Trinitarian theology becomes more inter-disciplinary in method. Thus the book explores the interface between the Trinity and mysticism, visual art, music, anthropology, ecclesiology and inter-religious dialogue. It offers fresh perspectives on a perennial theological theme in a way that makes the Trinity more credible for today.

Hesychasm And Art. “Although many of the iconographic traditions in Byzantine art formed in the early centuries of Christianity, they were not petrified within a time warp. Subtle changes and refinements in Byzantine theology did find reflection in changes to the iconographic and stylistic conventions of Byzantine art. This is a brilliant and innovative book in which Dr Anita Strezova argues that a religious movement called Hesychasm, especially as espoused by the great Athonite monk St Gregory Palamas, had a profound impact on the iconography and style of Byzantine art, including that of the Slav diaspora, of the late Byzantine period. While many have been attracted to speculate on such a connection, none until now has embarked on proving such a nexus. The main stumbling blocks have included the need for a comprehensive knowledge of Byzantine theology; a training in art history, especially iconological, semiotic and formalist methodologies; extensive fieldwork in Macedonia, Bulgaria, Serbia, Greece, Turkey and Russia, and a working knowledge of Greek, Old Church Slavonic, Macedonian, Russian, Serbian, Latin as well as several modern European languages, French, German, Russian and Italian. These are some of the skills which Dr Strezova has brought to her topic.” Professor Sasha Grishin AM, FAHA Adjunct Professor of Art History School of Literature, Languages and Linguistics The Australian National University
