“The dialog among tune and theology, dormant for too lengthy in recent times, is ultimately amassing velocity. And rightly so. there'll continuously be theologians who will regard tune as a a little bit peripheral drawback, too trivial to bother the intense pupil, and at the least virtually most unlikely to interact as a result of its infamous resistance to phrases and ideas. yet an expanding quantity are learning back what a lot of our forbears discovered centuries in the past, that the kinship among this pervasive characteristic of human existence and the quest for a Christian ‘intelligence of religion’ is intimate and ineradicable.

Maeve Heaney’s formidable, wide-ranging, and vigorous booklet pushes the dialog extra ahead nonetheless. Her process is unapologetically theological, grounded within the passions and issues of mainstream doctrinal theology. And but she is insisting . . . that tune needs to be given its due position within the ecology of theology. even if confident that track shouldn't be manage as a rival to linguistic or conceptual articulation, not to mention swallow up ‘traditional’ modes of theological language and inspiration, she is both confident that tune is an irreducible technique of coming to phrases with the area, a distinct motor vehicle of world-disclosure, and as such, can generate a specific type of ‘understanding’: ‘there are issues which God may possibly in basic terms be asserting via music.’ if that is so, it really is incumbent at the theologian to listen.”
—Jeremy Begbie, from the Foreword

“In a bold and encouraging research in theology as a cultured self-discipline, Heaney explores the function of track within the aesthetic conversion of individuals to their actual, physically presence. As Christian religion teaches that God has printed and divulges himself in genuine, physically presence, and as our reception of his genuine presence calls for our genuine presence, it follows that track could make us vulnerable to God’s revelation.”
—Willem Marie Speelman, Tilburg University

“Heaney bargains us a courageously interdisciplinary booklet on how track can mediate spiritual religion. She brings jointly her personal presents as composer, performer, and theologian as a way to create a fruitful conversation among musical conception, theological aesthetics, and a praxis of spiritual conversation. hence, readers will locate many stimulating pages, starting from own testimony to educational insights.”
—Michael Paul Gallagher, Gregorian college

“It will be difficult to visualize a e-book extra dedicated to exploring and celebrating music’s theological presents, current in addition to earlier. Heaney conveys a wonderful feel of song as a residing medium, resonant with theological importance on a number of degrees, and ready to input into and nurture the remodeled, embodied Christian lifestyles. during this multifaceted examine, she attracts on a magnificent (at occasions virtually overwhelming) array of assets, from ethnomusicology to theological aesthetics, specially, yet no longer solely, Catholic.”
—Frank Burch Brown, collage of Chicago Divinity School

Maeve Louise Heaney, a missionary of the Verbum Dei Fraternity, has taught on the Pontifical Gregorian college and is the 2011–2012 Banaan Fellow of Santa Clara college, California. She researches and teaches within the components of primary theology, tune, and spirituality.
