Christian theatre has rich roots, from ancient Hebrew dramas to medieval plays, but where does it fit in today's media-saturated society? "Performing the Sacred" is a fascinating dialogue between a theologian and theatre artist, offering the first full-scale exploration of theatre and theology. The authors illuminate the importance of live performance in a virtual world, of preserving the ancient art form of storytelling by becoming the story. Theologically, theatre reflects Christianity's central doctrines - incarnation, community, and presence - enhancing the human creative experience and simultaneously engaging viewers on multiple levels. "This Engaging Culture" series title will be a key volume for those interested in theatre as well as drama practitioners, worship leaders, and culture makers.
