Wolterstorff, Nicholas: Art in Action

Book Review

Nicholas Wolterstorff: Art in Action, Eerdmans - Grand Rapids, 1980
by Steve Guthrie
Wolterstorff was for many years professor of philosophy at Calvin College and then, until his retirement, Noah Porter Professor of Philosophical Theology at Yale. His book is rich with Christian wisdom and theological insight. What hit me like a revelation, however, was how the book challenges many of the ideals and assumptions enshrined in our culture’s thinking about the fine arts.
