Resonant Witness

Conversations between Music and Theology

by Jeremy S. Begbie

Res­o­nant Wit­ness gath­ers togeth­er a wide, har­mo­nious cho­rus of voic­es from across the musi­cal and the­o­log­i­cal spec­trum to show that music and the­ol­o­gy can each learn much from the oth­er — and that the majesty and pow­er of both are pro­found­ly ampli­fied when they do. 

With essays touch­ing on J. S. Bach, Hilde­gard of Bin­gen, Mar­tin Luther, Karl Barth, Olivi­er Mes­si­aen, jazz impro­vi­sa­tion, South African free­dom songs, and more, this vol­ume encour­ages musi­cians and the­olo­gians to pur­sue a more fruit­ful and sus­tained engage­ment with one anoth­er.
