Abstract and Keywords

This chapter examines the connection between music and natural theology, first considering two examples of efforts to incorporate music into projects that might be termed ‘natural theology’. The first is a wide-ranging and immensely ambitious theological project pioneered by David Brown, currently at the University of St Andrews. The second involves Anthony Monti's book, . The chapter then addresses the following questions: what distinguishes ‘natural theology’ from any other theology? How might music play a part in the endeavour of theology to bear witness to the nongodforsakenness of creation even under the conditions of sin?

Keywords: music, natural theology, David Brown, Anthony Monti, arts
