Reviews of God and Work

"Toward the end of this stimulating collection, Brian Keeble observes that 'Only universal truths can satisfy the needs of that condition that is the mental turmoil and spiritual demoralization of modern man. Indeed, one might ask whether the necessity for such a metaphysical perspective is bound to give rise to the articulation of the required truths.' The book as a whole shows how these truths have in fact been articulated, throughout the course of the twentieth century, by a series of remarkable makers and thinkers: A. K. Coomaraswamy, W. R. Lethaby, Edward Johnston, Eric Gill, Frithjof Schuon.…Characteristically, Keeble's interest in his subjects is not merely biographical: he is concerned with the witness that they bear to an understanding of beauty and craftsmanship which is rooted in eternity, and universal in its significance. God and Work is accordingly a natural sequel to the author's anthology Every Man An Artist: Readings in the Traditional Philosophy of Art (2005; reviewed in TAR 9). As Wendell Berry states in the foreword, this book 'brings again into view the possibility of religion practicable in work, and work compatible with worship and wholly meant'."
Temenos Review



“Brian Keeble's God & Work: Aspects of Art And Tradition (9781933316680, $19.95) surveys religion, prayer, and provides essays connecting work to spirituality. From connections between art and labor to the fruits resulting from dream states, God & Work is a fine spiritual and literary consideration. ”
The Bookwatch Review



In his Foreword to this important book, Wendell Berry gets to the heart of the matter when he writes: “By putting ‘God’ and ‘work’ in the same title—in, so to speak, the same breath—Mr. Keeble challenges the modern orthodoxy, which has done its best to keep those terms separate…He brings again into view the possibility of religion practicable in work, and work compatible with worship and wholly meant.”

…These essays on Art and Tradition are richly rewarding and are rooted in a vision that has profound implications for our world and our individual lives.
Sacred Web, from a review by M. Ali Lakhani
