Wonder, a topic of perennial Christian interest, draws us into fundamental questions about God and the things of God. In God and Wonder: Theology, Imagination, and the Arts, internationally recognized theologians, artists, and ministers weigh in on the place of wonder in Christian thought, attending to the ways that wonder informs our thinking about the arts, imagination, the church, creation, and the task of theology. What is the place of wonder in the Christian life? How can a theology of imagination contribute to our understanding of God and the world? What does wonder have to do with the life of the church in preaching, teaching, and worship? How might reflection on wonder enhance our understanding of place, vocation, and family? In God and Wonder readers enter a rich and insightful conversation about how cultivating wonder and the gift of imagination can revitalize our understanding of the world.
