    My thesis in this book is that Christianity lives supremely from the imagination. My central claim is that the role of the imagination is crucial to understanding the true nature of Christianity. Unless we attempt to do full justice to the part played by the imagination, we cannot understand the Christian faith and we cannot ourselves truly.   William Dyrness explores the roots of Reformed theology from sixteenth-century Geneva to seventeenth and eighteenth-century Puritan New England. Dyrness argues that, though this tradition impeded development of particular visual forms, it encouraged others, especially in areas of popular culture and the ordering of family and community.

      There are now many theological works that seek to connect faith and imagination. Among the pioneers is William Lynch, an American Jesuit and aphoristic thinker. Then we have, in their undoubtedly more systematic way, Karl Rahner and Hans Urs von Balthasar; and from the point of view of moral theology, William Spohn.   by Willie James Jennings Yale University Press, New Haven, Conn. pages Reviewed by Joseph D. Small This is a hard book to read. The difficulty does not lie in dull subject, abstruse argument or tedious prose. The trouble lies in the questions it raises about our conventional ways of understanding the intersection of Christianity and race. Predictable condemnations of racism and Author: The Presbyterian Outlook.

    Faith. Belief, trust, and loyalty to a person or thing. Christians find their security and hope in God as revealed in Jesus Christ, and say "amen" to that unique relationship to God in the Holy Spirit through love and obedience as expressed in lives of discipleship and service. Faith and Imagination; The Humanities Center welcomes Andrew Prevot, Associate Professor of Theology at Boston College, as this semester’s Faith and Imagination speaker on Friday, April 13th with two events held during the day. Book Discussion: AM in JFSB. We will be discussing Prevot’s book, Thinking Prayer.
