PICTURES AT A THEOLOGICAL EXHIBITION: SCENES OF THE CHURCH'S WORSHIP, WITNESS AND WISDOM by Kevin J. Vanhoozer

WHY I LIKE IT
What does it mean to be biblical? In many ways, Kevin Vanhoozer has been seeking to answer this question his whole theological career. Is “biblical” merely an ideological linguistic move by certain evangelical power-brokers to sanctify one set of beliefs and practices over against others? Or does the word actually capture something unique about what it means to walk this way, and not the way of the world?

Many Christians are held captive by a picture of the imagination as a purveyor of false images, prone to idolatry. We live in a society fixated on images that have little or no significance. We are surrounded by models of the world that are not in touch with any truth outside of themselves. But we lack the resources to see and imagine things differently. Kevin Vanhoozer calls the church to a more biblical and premodern picture, one that sees every particular person, thing and event in the light of God's act of reconciling the world to himself in Christ. Through essays on the church's worship, witness and wisdom, Vanhoozer shows us how a poetic imagination can answer the questions of life's meaning by drawing our attention to what really matters: the God of the gospel.
