Visual Theology: Seeing and Understanding the Truth about God

Challies, Tim; Byers, Josh

More than a picture book, this is an earnest, transformational introduction to faithful theology focused on godliness and relationship with Christ. Recognizing the unique challenge of learning in a visual culture, Tim Challies and Josh Byers have produced a wholly new approach to the introduction of theology, and given us an excellent primer in the essentials of the gospel in the process.

Publisher's Description

We live in a visual culture. Today, people increasingly rely upon visuals to help them understand new and difficult concepts. The rise and stunning popularity of the Internet infographic has given us a new way in which to convey data, concepts and ideas.

But the visual portrayal of truth is not a novel idea. Indeed, God himself used visuals to teach truth to his people. The tabernacle of the Old Testament was a visual representation of man s distance from God and God s condescension to his people. Each part of the tabernacle was meant to display something of man s treason against God and God s kind response. Likewise, the sacraments of the New Testament are visual representations of man s sin and God s response. Even the cross was both reality and a visual demonstration.

As teachers and lovers of sound theology, Challies and Byers have a deep desire to convey the concepts and principles of systematic theology in a fresh, beautiful and informative way. In this book, they have made the deepest truths of the Bible accessible in a way that can be seen and understood by a visual generation."
