We live in a world of beauty. Beauty is all around us. Creation is alive with beauty and wonder, signs, smells, and sounds. Beauty surrounds us and envelops us. Modern conceptions of beauty have tended to diminish beauty, confine it and reduce the scope of the beautiful to that of the pretty, the merely decorative, or the inoffensively pleasant. But that is not the strange beauty the Gospel is witness to. If we trace beauty all the way back to its start, its impetus, its origin and creation – we encounter God – the beautiful God. The search for beauty, the desire for beauty, the love of beauty all lead to the same destination —the triune God of grace and glory. Unaccustomed today to speak of God in such terms as love and beauty, Myk Habets calls us to get over ourselves and encounter God afresh as we behold the Beauty of the triune God in the Face of Jesus Christ.
The evening will also feature a book launch of Myk Habets’ latest work, The Progressive Mystery: Tracing the Elusive Spirit in Scripture and Tradition (Lexham press, 2019).
