Product description

Product Description

“Tikkun Olam”—To Mend the World is premised on the conviction that artists and theologians have things to learn from one another, things about the complex interrelationality of life and about a coherence of things given and sustained by God. The ten essays compiled in this volume seek to attend to the lives, burdens, and hopes that characterize human life in a world broken but unforgotten, in travail but moving towards the freedom promised by a faithful Creator. They reflect on whether the world—wounded as it is by war, by hatred, by exploitation, by neglect, by reason, and by human imagination itself—can be healed. Can there be repair? And can art and theology tell the truth of the world’s woundedness and still speak of its hope?

“Artistically sensitive, theologically rich, and eminently readable—this is a rare combination, but it is amply demonstrated in this fascinating set of essays.”
—Jeremy Begbie, Duke University

“Emerging from a theological symposium and an art exhibition, the essays in this book show in glorious profusion and profundity the marks of this double origin. Theologians, artists, literary scholars, and musicians combine to bear witness to a world that is broken and yet is also the stage for a decisive event of divine love and healing. These are essays full of insights about order and disorder, beauty and tragedy. Their achievement is to make the reader think and, above all, imagine.”
—Paul S. Fiddes, University of Oxford

“The contributors to this book seek to stay alive between the questions and the answer. They have labored to offer us their reflections on realities that have been made and that are still being made anew. The result is a prayer to stir us awake. We need such books.”
—From the foreword by Alfonse Borysewicz
