Gloriously illuminated by a series of fine art paintings, The Christian Vision of God is an ideal introduction to what Christians believe about the Trinity. Alister McGrath seeks to engage both the mind and the imagination as he focuses on the astounding, life-transforming truth that God wants us to know him. Poetry, prayer and theological reflection are interwoven with commentary on the ideas conveyed through works such as Daniel Bonnells Pearl of Great Price, Klimts The Kiss, Rembrandts The Storm on the Sea of Galilee, Morazzones Pentecost, William Blakes Moses and the Burning Bush, Botticellis Holy Trinity and Rublevs Icon with the Trinity.The result assures us that, in the end, our Christian faith concerns far more than growing in understanding: it is about being saturated with the presence and power of a loving and living God.
Though a stand alone volume, The Christian Vision of God also serves to complete Alister McGraths acclaimed Truth and the Christian Imagination series.
