The Beauty of God's House - A Collection of Essays Published as a Tribute to Stratford Caldecott

NLM readers might be interested to know of newly published book,  The Beauty of God's House , which is a Festschrift for Stratford Caldecott.

It is a collection of essays edited by Francesca Murphy and features contributions from the Davids Schindler, Marc Ouellet, John Milbank, Aidan Nichols, Adrian Walker, Jean Borella, David Fagerburg, Nick Healy Jr, Michael Cameron, Phil Zaleski, Carol Zaleski, Derek Cross, Mary Taylor, Reza Shah-Kazemi, and myself with an afterword by his wife Leonie Caldecott.

The book covers the whole range of Caldecott's interests, from poetics to politics. Anyone interested in the field of theology and the arts will find much to interest them. Leafing through the titles (I have just received my copy) if there is a common thread that runs through them all it is, as the title suggests, Stratford's interests is in the beauty of the cosmos and how it reflects the beauty of God.

It is available from the publisher, Cascade Books here.
