About the Authors
  • Theology, Music and Time shows ways in which music can deepen our understanding of the Christian God and his involvement with the world. Without assuming any specialist knowledge of music, the author explores rhythm, meter, resolution, repetition and improvisation, and through them opens up some of the central themes of the Christian faith--creation, salvation, eschatology, time and eternity, eucharist, election and ecclesiology. He shows that music can refresh theology, giving it new ways of coming to terms with God.

    • First book to attempt to bring together in a rigorous way the worlds of music and theology (but does not assume any specialist knowledge of music)
    • Shows the unique and important roles that music plays in theology
    • Implications for use of music in the Church, in particular the role of music in worship

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...his aim is ambitious...his book succeeds very well...Begbie's argument is complex and detailed, and for those who read music he provides closer musical analysis in sans serif typeface. Yet he writes clearly and concisely, making the argument accessible to the non-musician...In his best book to date, Begie gives a powerful and convincing account of music's contributions to theology." Modern Theology

    "His [Begbie's] presentation is refrshing, presupposing no special musical expertise, applying no contrived arguments or cumbersome proofs, and mercifully free from jargon of methodologies, papradigms, or models. Begbie converses on music to invite theological conversation. His book is well served by good indices and an excellent bibliography, of which substansive notes (at the foot, where notes belong) testify to the author's mastery." Journal of Religion
