Martin Luther’s Theology of Beauty is the first extensive study on Luther's theological aesthetics. In it, Mark Mattes explains that the concept of beauty is a crucial theme for Luther's paradoxical understanding of justification by grace alone through faith alone. He seeks to draw out the theological and spiritual implications of that truth by showing how Luther affirms music and visual imagery as human expressions of beauty. Mattes explains that for Luther, the cross is the lens through which the beauty of God is refracted into the world, and it is the beauty of the gospel that enables believers to feel at home in God’s creation when others struggle to find purpose and meaning.
