Patterns of Promise
Monday, December 10, 2012

Ashgate has released the latest title in its series Ashgate Studies in Theology, Imagination and the Arts.

Art, Imagination and Christian Hope: Patterns of Promise is co-edited by DITA's Director, Jeremy Begbie, with Trevor Hart and Gavin Hopps of the University of St. Andrews.

Through a range of authors including Richard Bauckham, Paul S. Fiddes, and Bruce W. Longenecker, the volume attends to the contributions that architecture, drama, literature, music, and painting can make in a exploration of Christian hope. We discover that in art the poetic interplay between past, present, and future takes specific concrete forms, furnishing vital resources for sustaining an imaginative ecology of hope.
