The Weekly Hit List: June 15, 2012

Broken Hallelujahs by Christian Scharen
was reviewed on Jesus Creed.


“Scharen’s book is well-written, thoughtful, clear, and provocative. It offers a needed corrective. . . .

“The best part of Scharen’s book to me was his discussion of the theology of glory and the theology of the cross. He shows that brokenness can be ‘true.’

“Art must be listened to with the kind of heart that desires to know more of it. Scharen calls this ‘knowing with’ art and proposes that this kind of listening enables us to see things about ourselves that we didn’t know were there.”
