Bach Among the Theologians


SKU: 621500 Category:


Although J. S. Bach is most often remembered for his music, the author reminds us of the message of Bach’s works and of his understanding and devotion to his vocation within the church. Maintaining that the Reformation heritage provides the underlying thematic and religious inspiration for Bach’s work, Pelikan delves into three main movements within Lutheran theology of the 17th and 18th centuries. He also points to Bach’s particular interest in the meaning of the cross, and to redemption and atonement through the death and resurrection of Christ.
