An Elegant Book

Main Article Content

Gregg Mast


It is an honor to offer these theological reflections to Donald Bruggink in celebration of his long and faithful service as a teacher and mentor to many. In gratitude for his profound influence on the development of the worship life of the Reformed Church in America in the last three decades, I have chosen to explore the issue of beauty, an often-ignored subject of theological reflection. If one weaves together Donald's love of art, music, architecture, and the spoken word, it becomes clear that he has committed a lifetime to reminding us of the importance of beauty to faith, and faith to beauty.
