Book excerpt: This book brings the emerging fields of practical theology and theology of the arts into a dialogue beyond the bias of modern systematic and constructive theology. The authors draw upon postmodern, post-secular, feminist, liberation, and dialogical/dialectical philosophy and theology, and their critiques of the narrow modern emphases on reason and the scientific method, as the model for all knowledge. Such a practical theology of the arts focuses the work of theology on the actual practices that engage the arts in their various forms as the means of interpreting and understanding the nature of the communities and their members, as well as the mechanisms through which these communities engage in transformative work, to make persons and neighborhoods whole. This book presents its theological claims through the careful analysis of several stories of communities around the world that have engaged in transformational practices through a specific art form, investigating communities from Europe, the Middle East, South America, and the U.S. The case studies explored include Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Druze, indigenous, and sometimes agnostic subjects, involved in visual art, music, dance, theatre, documentary film, and literature. Theology and the Arts demonstrates that the challenges of a postmodern and post-secular context require a fundamental rethinking of theology that focuses on discrete practices of faithful communities, rather than one-dimensional theories about religion.

Right from day one, Chick the 1st is beleaguered by the doubts and questions that come with the capacity to reason. When the farmyard dog asks him "What are you?", little does he suspect the turmoil of endless enigmas he provokes in our little chick's mind. While seeking answers to his endless questions, Chick the 1st shakes up all the social conventions of the chicken coop, causing scandal left, right and center. With the help of his Aunt Gallina and the mouse that devours books, Chick the 1st grapples with reality, both in the abstract and literal sense!

Book excerpt: Simon fait chaque nuit le même rêve dont une femme énigmatique lui livre la clef : il est la réincarnation de l’oncle de Milarepa, le célèbre ermite tibétain du XIe siècle, qui vouait à son neveu une haine inexpiable. Pour sortir du cycle des renaissances, Simon doit raconter l’histoire des deux hommes, s’identifiant à eux au point de mêler leur identité à la sienne. Mais où commence le rêve, où finit le réel ? Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt, dans cette pièce monologue qui est aussi un conte dans l’esprit du bouddhisme tibétain, poursuit son questionnement philosophique : la réalité existe-t-elle en dehors de la perception qu’on en a ? Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt est l’un des auteurs francophones les plus lus et les plus représentés dans le monde. Normalien, agrégé de philosophie, docteur, il s’est d’abord fait connaître au théâtre avec Le Visiteur, un classique du répertoire international. Rapidement, d’autres succès ont suivi, aussi bien sur scène qu’en librairie : Variations énigmatiques, Le Libertin, Hôtel des deux mondes, Petits crimes conjugaux, Mes Évangiles, La Tectonique des sentiments, Kiki Van Beethoven, Milarepa, Monsieur Ibrahim et les fleurs du Coran, Oscar et la dame rose, L’Enfant de Noé, Le sumo qui ne pouvait pas grossir et Les dix enfants que madame Ming n’a jamais eus… Ses pièces ont été récompensées par plusieurs Molière et le Grand Prix du théâtre de l’Académie française. Ses livres sont traduits en 43 langues et plus de 50 pays jouent régulièrement ses pièces.
