Book Review: Visual Theology

We live in a world flooded by media. We’re constantly bombarded on every side by images and graphics that are meant to captivate our attention. For that reason, I am glad to see Visual Theology by Tim Challies and Josh Byers be released. While I do not land in the reformed camp like Challies, I appreciate his work in this book and have gleaned a lot of wisdom from both himself and other reformed writers throughout my life.

This book is one that seeks to place the proverbial cookies of theology on a slightly lower shelf and present them in a fresh way that will allow others to savor the nuggets. I believe the authors have done just that. They have managed to design some basic pillars of theology into a piece of art. While I would have liked to have seen even more diagrams and less paragraphs, I can say that I think they hit a fairly good balance.

If you’re looking for a new way to view theology, this would be a good book for you to pick up and read. While I would not recommend it as the only source of theology because I disagree with Challies’ views on some items, it does not mean that I should not try to understand his view. I am thankful for the way it is presented and the work he is doing.

I received this book for free in exchange for an unbiased review. These words are my own and have not been influenced in any way by the publisher.
