Resonant Witness gathers together a wide, harmonious chorus of voices from across the musical and theological spectrum to show that music and theology can each learn much from the other -- and that the majesty and power of both are profoundly amplified when they do.  With essays touching on J. S. Bach, Hildegard of Bingen, Martin Luther, Karl Barth, Olivier Messiaen, jazz improvisation, South African freedom songs, and more, this volume encourages musicians and theologians to pursue a more fruitful and sustained engagement with one another.  Contributors: Jeremy S.

A fascinating dialogue and juxtaposition between philosophy/theology and music/worship. A compilation of thought-provoking, interdisciplinary essays that represent the forefront of intersection of the related subjects. Of the many topics that resonate long after reading I name but two: Bach's Musico-Theological Conception of Death by Richard J. Plantinga and Tonal Closure and Hope in relation to Mahler's Symphony No. 9 by Borthwick, Hart, and Monti.

I must, however, echo the sentiments expressed by John D. Witvliet in the Afterword that substantial parts of the essays push way beyond the boundaries of my comprehension and competency. One would hope, if an opportunity of such be graced, to grasp a little bit more on second reading. ( )
