Here is a great video clip Jeremy Begbie on theology through the arts. I have a few books from Begbie that discuss theology and the arts but I had never actually heard him play piano until I heard him play a piece by Frans Liszt to close out a theology symposium at Wheaton College on the work of Bible scholar N. T. Wright. I was caught off guard by how the piece he played seemed to say something abut God and theology that the words of all of those amazing scholars couldn't. I have really wrestled over the past few years with how bring to bear well thought out theology in the worship songs I lead and the songs I write and perform outside of church. I see this as one of the most necessary pursuits of musicians of faith in our modern context. The truth is most folks that walk into a church don't really care for wrestling much with theology and won't really respond that well to lectures on theology. But music has a way of connecting with anyone at a heart level. The truth is that folks who attend church likely experience as much or more spiritual formation by the songs sung in worship as they do by listening to a message from a pastor. Begbie has some great thoughts here on music and theology that would do a lot of worship leaders and musicians some good to check out.
