about

Theology, Music and Time shows ways in which music can deepen our understanding of the Christian God and his involvement with the world. Without assuming any specialist knowledge of music, the author explores rhythm, meter, resolution, repetition and improvisation, and through them opens up some of the central themes of the Christian faith--creation, salvation, eschatology, time and eternity, eucharist, election and ecclesiology. He shows that music can refresh theology, giving it new ways of coming to terms with God.

Editorial Reviews

"His [Begbie's] presentation is refrshing, presupposing no special musical expertise, applying no contrived arguments or cumbersome proofs, and mercifully free from jargon of methodologies, papradigms, or models. Begbie converses on music to invite theological conversation. His book is well served by good indices and an excellent bibliography, of which substansive notes (at the foot, where notes belong) testify to the author's mastery." Journal of Religion
