Is there a sharp divide between the sacred and the secular? This book explores how it is possible for human beings to know God, and not just to know him in the more conventional and obvious ways of prayer and sacrament, scripture and theology. TheMoreIs there a sharp divide between the sacred and the secular? This book explores how it is possible for human beings to know God, and not just to know him in the more conventional and obvious ways of prayer and sacrament, scripture and theology.

The authors primary aim is to point the way to a deeper knowledge and understanding of God through various other media, especially literature and music, art and architecture. When words fail - it is then that signs and symbols, images and sounds, pictures and dreams, have to take over. The painters eye and the musicians ear give them the insight to perceive things differently and through their work, can help us to experience a growing awareness of the underlying unity of art and religion and life itself.

Here is an attempt to open windows of the mind and soul through aesthetic appreciation.
