The experience of beauty is one of the most powerful and compelling ones we know. In this talk, Dr. Junius Johnson will give a theological account of this experience as grounded in reminding: the beautiful is that which reminds us of God. But God may also be experienced as beautiful, and this experience of divine beauty is the basis of all experiences of creaturely beauty. And so we must look into the very beauty of God, and seek to understand how something can be not only beautiful even though terrible, but even beautiful because terrible.
