What is God’s beauty? Can we see it? Can we feel it? If we go looking for his beauty in Scripture, what are we looking for? If we go looking for his beauty in creation, where do we find it?
Answers to questions like these comprise the essence of my favorite book of 2018: Jonathan King’s, “The Beauty of the Lord: Theology as Aesthetics,” published by Lexham Press.
Jonathan King was a new author to me. I discovered in seminary he studied under Michael Horton and completed his PhD work at TEDS under Kevin Vanhoozer. He now serves as lecturer in the Faculty of Liberal Arts at the Universitas Pelita Harapan in Indonesia.
Today I’m breaking the mold. This will be a long conversation. I suspect it will go an hour or so. Jonathan joins us from his apartment in Jakarta.
