Redeemer Readers 2014-15
This year, we will look at five books that deal with Christianity and the Arts and the impact of the arts on history, religion and society. We will start with a book that deals in part with the biblical prohibition about making art (especially graven or sculptured images). The second book deals with painting and the profound influence that the artist Lucas Cranach had on Luther and the Reformation. Next, we will move on to music, and the interface between Bach and Frederick the Great, as one era gave way to another. Our Lent book is a reflection on Rembrandt’s great painting, The Return of the Prodigal Son (in the Hermitage, St Petersburg) and will be complemented by a selection of poetry. And last, we will read a novel which deals with the prodigal son theme in an American mid-west Presbyterian setting. Some of these selections will help prepare for a projected theme for next year, that of Christianity and Non-violence.
New members are always welcome, even those who can’t make all five meetings. If new members are interested in attending any or all of the discussions, or want more information, please contact Pauline Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
