Top 5 Apologetics Books (From Aesthetics POV)

Truth, beauty, goodness. Theodicies and apologetics from the perspective of beauty...not what we usually thinking when defending the faith. But truth is beautiful, y'all, and not just in a mathematical way, but in a kittens and thunderstorms kind of way.

I often speak of apologetics through aesthetics and beauty on my YouTube channel, and recently received a request for a Top 5 of books that could fit into that category. Here is that video. List of the books can be found below the embedded vid.


The top 5, if you want the spoilers:
5. Walking On Water, Madeleine L'Engle
4. Supper of the Lamb, Francis Farrar Capon
3. Pensees, Pascal
2. Notes From The Tilt-A-Whirl, N. D. Wilson
1. Orthodoxy, G. K. Chesterton

  1. I've heard (but never read) that David Bentley Hart's book, Beauty of the Infinite, is an aesthetic theology of God (Hart is an Eastern Orthodox theologian). Have you heard of it, or read it?

    1. Never heard of it, sorry. Have only heard of Hart himself incidentally.
