In countering an overly emotional and sometimes illogical culture, we Christians should not make the past mistake of ceding art, for example, to lost people. But if our God is beautiful, then we are by definition interested in beauty…the gospel does not shut down our imagination or our love for beautiful things, but rather fires and fuels them and directs them to the God who embodies beauty.
— Owen Strachan and Doug Sweeney, Jonathan Edwards on Beauty, p142
