Creator Spirit

The Holy Spirit and the Art of Becoming Human

by Stephen R. Guthrie


Price: £14.99
Publisher:Baker Academic imprint of Baker Publishing from SPCK
Published:01 May 2011
The author explains that his university courses have been the background to his book. As a musician he is involved in art, as he endeavours to illuminate the connection he sees between the Spirit and art. His guide in this is St Athanasius, which in itself surprising since the Church Father who comes to mind in connection with the Spirit is usually St Basil the Great. With the help of his guide the author explores a number of facets of the Spiritís work in Ďre-making'. Concepts of aesthetics are also shown in relation to the Spiritís action, so that a wide and expanding discussion is engaged in. The reader may need to consider the many sections of the argument slowly, before moving on to the next under discussion.
