A Theology of Beauty

Is beauty a form of language, trying to communicate something to us that words will never convey? How can this be?

The Scriptures begin with the beauty of creation, of human bodies, and the attractiveness of moral knowledge. Then beauty leads us astray, conceals evil, becomes an idol. What is the role of beauty in human life? Why does the Bible open and close in beauty and desire? How is the unseen God ‘beautiful’?
