Theology, Music and Time shows ways in which music can deepen our understanding of the Christian God and his involvement with the world. Without assuming any specialist knowledge of music, the author explores rhythm, meter, resolution, repetition and improvisation, and through them opens up some of the central themes of the Christian faith--creation, salvation, eschatology, time and eternity, eucharist, election and ecclesiology. He shows that music can refresh theology, giving it new ways of coming to terms with God.

First book to attempt to bring together in a rigorous way the worlds of music and theology (but does not assume any specialist knowledge of music)

Shows the unique and important roles that music plays in theology

Implications for use of music in the Church, in particular the role of music in worship
