"William Dyrness's bold invitation to a poetic theology shaped by Scripture, tradition, and imagination -- one luring us toward a fuller participation in beauty than argument or concept alone allow -- reminds us that truth itself is beautiful to behold and poetic to the core. . . If poetry is in its deepest reflex an intensification of life, then Dyrness's call for a poetic theology is one we ignore at our peril, reminding us that faithful living is not only about proper thinking but also -- and, perhaps, more properly -- about the texture of our living and the quality of our loving."

"Makes a strong case for aesthetics as one of the avenues used by God to draw human beings near to him and his glory. . . A wonderful journey through Reformed spirituality and a wake-up call for Reformed theology."
