Well, I didn't get much feedback over the weekend, so I'm reposting this. Pardon the self-aggrandizing push, but I am psyched that Another Angle, my experimental look through the "art" lens at the sacraments, is now Kindle ready.
Inside, you'll find two essays, around fifteen poems and a novella.
An odd mix, no? That's why I said it was an experiment. The general argument is that Christians need a theological component to their world view, yes, but we also need an art component. My chosen object of inquiry is the sacraments, namely baptism and the Lord's Supper.
So part 1 very briefly examines the theological implications of these sacraments.
Part 2 examines the nature of viewing reality through an artistic lens.
Parts 3 and 4 attempt to demonstrate a look at the sacraments through art, specifically written art, poetry and story. (This assumes, of course, that what I've written is "art." I don't claim to be one of the "masters," yet I am a man, made in God's image, and thus I have creative capacity. This capacity allows me to offer art as a means of making experience concrete.)
