Are you a young adult who loves to read? Do you have a blog or other form of social media to promote your love of reading? We need your help! This fall, we’re really ramping up our YA events and would like to invite you to help us get the word out. Join us tonight for “insider” information on all of our upcoming YA events. Join us to discuss some of the various opportunities in which you can help us, and in turn we’ll promote your own blogs, and give you access to meet and interview some amazing authors. We’ll be brainstorming ideas, discussing bestselling authors, and munching on some delicious snacks. Please RSVP to email@example.com if you’re interested in attending.
It is often difficult to describe beauty or even justify attempts to experience something beautiful. Yet if artists--whether painters or poets, actors or musicians, architects or sculptors--teach us anything, it is that the pursuit of beauty is a common feature among all humanity. As Cecilia Gonzalez-Andrieu contends, these varied experiences with artistic beauty are embedded with revelatory and prophetic power that not only affects a single individual but allows for communal formation. Named one of America magazine's most promising young theologians, Gonzalez-Andrieu seeks to engage art in order to reveal its religious significance. Bridge to Wonder (Baylor Univ, $35.94) proposes a method of theological aesthetics allowing readers to mine the depths of creative beauty to discover variegated theological truths that enable greater communion with each other and the One source of all that is beautiful.
