Jeremy Begbie - How can music help us imagine and reimagine our understanding of ourselves and God?
How can music help us to access theological realities to which words bear witness? How can the patterns of Western music provide us with a disarming but compelling way into the heart of the Gospel? How can the uncontainability of music point us to a transcendent God of love and grace? How can music expand our perceptions of what it is to be human and open up conversations of faith?
In today’s show we are talking to Professor Jeremy Begbie. Jeremy is a Professor at Duke Divinity School, as well as being ordained in the Church of England, and a professionally trained musician. He writes extensively on the relationship between theology and the arts, with a particular focus on music.
