Description

In this Spring 2011 Evening Public Lecture David Taylor argues that the excesses which we experience in the arts function as a sign of the Spirit's work in the world. He begins by reflecting on the excesses that characterize God's creation (such as fig trees) and then seeks to show how artists invite us into God's economy of abundance.
