Beautiful Orthodoxy The Goodness, Truth, and Beauty of Life in Christ All is not well in the world today. People are looking for answers and searching for meaning amid the chaos. People are looking for goodness, truth, and beauty in a world that often falls terribly short. Christians believe that our longing for the good, the true, and the beautiful is found in Jesus Christ. But grasping and living into the fullness of this reality is not so easy. Our answers easily skew into ugly orthodoxy or beautiful heresy. What we need is beautiful orthodoxy. It’s the approach we at Christianity Today believe to be the way forward in the world today. Our orthodoxy is anchored firmly on our risen Christ and his gospel, and is expressed in a language and with lives that model the unconditional love and bloodstained beauty of our Lord Jesus Christ. By examining philosophy’s transcendentals—the good, the true, and the beautiful—Mark Galli casts a vision for how we live out beautiful orthodoxy. Chapters alternate between the common and uncommon expressions of these transcendentals—to show how we yearn for the good, the true, and the beautiful, yet how Jesus Christ transcends our usual understanding of these words. Our world is in desperate need of truth, goodness, and beauty. This book details the wonder and privilege we have in living out and communicating this beautiful orthodoxy to the world.
