Understand Theology Through the Arts: A Video

Differentiating “theology for the arts,” from “arts for theology,” theologian and pianist Jeremy Begby reflects on the way the arts can help us explore and understand theology. Using an example of how Paganini transformed a rather banal melody into one of the great Paganini themes, Begby points to God’s transformative, redemptive work in taking what is banal, even ugly, in the world and creating something fine from it - even holy.Begby demonstrates the necessary dependence of innovation upon a tradition and a context – suggesting that worship leaders innovate by building from their tradition for a particular situation.
