The notion of beauty is elusive: we love the things we find beautiful, and yet we are inarticulate when we try to communicate this love, or describe its essence. We are aware of people, paintings and houses that are universally recognized as beautiful, and yet we know also that beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. In defining beauty and our response to it, we are often caught between the concrete and the sublime. We wish to categorize beauty, to clearly label its parts, and yet we wish also to celebrate its mysterious and at times mythical power. Armstrong's response is a discursive and gra

<div>How many of us have stood before famous paintings only to realize, with quiet panic, that we can't work out what the fuss is all about? What do we do-beyond just staring-to get the most out of art? How do we come to develop an attachment to individual works and find them fascinating? How do they come to matter to us?While many teachers and critics have diligently directed attention to questions in art history, theory, or criticism, John Armstrong, in a powerful and original shift of focus, considers the roots of our personal attachment to art. Perhaps this most neglected aspect of t

Go with the flow.Times change.Nothing ever stays the same.So proclaims the voice of our age.But is this wisdom of the world congruous with the wisdom of God? Is the church really too old-fashioned, or has it turned a blind eye as the world crept in and redefined God's commands and His power? In fifteen clearly defined essays, John H. Armstrong and fourteen other evangelical leaders examine exactly what the sufficiency of Scripture and the authority of the Gospel entail theologically and what that means to us as followers of the Lord Jesus Christ. What does the name 'evangelical' mean histor

John Armstrong has worked as a paperboy, a caddy, and a Bible camp counsellor; as a janitor at the Regal Theatre, a shipper of video porn, and a real live punk rock star. As if those jobs weren't punishment enough, at the tender age of thirty he entered the trenches of journalism. Armstrong's first job - a slave-labour gig shovelling rabbit feces from a gigantic barn - teaches him a valuable lesson. Every subsequent working experience, he learns, will contain the following unavoidable and mind-numbing elements. "Get up, get dressed so you can hurry to a place you don't want to be, and
