'A mere metaphor', 'only symbolic', 'just a fantasy' - those inform story words show how figurative language has been cheapened and devalued in our sleek and postmodern tradition. In God and the artistic Imagination, Paul Avis argues the opposite: we see that really, metaphor, image and delusion, are the main to a real wisdom of God and the sacred. Avis examines what he calls an alternate culture, stemming from the Romantic poets Blake, Wordsworth and Keats and drawing at the considered Cleridge and Newman, and event in either smooth philosophy and science.
God and the inventive Imagination intriguingly attracts on a few non-theological disciplines, from literature to philosophy of technological know-how, to teach us that God is properly likened to an artist or poet and that the best truths are expressed in an imaginitive shape.
Anyone wishing to additional their realizing of God, trust and the mind's eye will locate this an inspiring paintings.
