Aesthetics and Theological Insight
This chapter examines some additional barriers to the fruitful use of aesthetics in theodicy: those arising from unhelpful ways of understanding aesthetics. After arguing against some prevalent problems within aesthetic theory, it offers an account of Christian aesthetics that draws on the work of Hans Urs von Balthasar and Frank Burch Brown, which allows for aesthetics to offer insight into theological tasks such as theodicy.
