In the third issue of volume four, Wilson Yates reflects on the arts and theological disciplines and makes the claim that the theologian and the seminary have a special calling and responsibility to understand the power of art, to interpret it in a way that the churches will understand, and teach us all how the arts and religion are intrinsically related and mutually dependent upon one another in the midst of our own unique autonomy and distinctiveness. In effect, he concludes, the theologian has the opportunity and responsibility to create a constructive and vital response to the power of the arts. John S. (Tim) Nuveen provides notes on a theology and art study day at the national gallery in London. Jerry A. Evenrud writes a visual exegesis of his collection of works on the Prodigal Son which were on exhibition at Luther Northwestern Theological Seminary and at United Theological Seminary in 1992. John English contributes an article on Leonard Baskin and the Gehenna Press: The Work of Fifty Years. Harold Hatt writes of theology and film in dialogue in Relating to the Indigenous Culture. Arlene Swidler writes about creative writing through a theological lens. Kenneth T. Lawrence writes of Tradition and Innovation in Late Twentieth Century American Church Architecture. He compares the Church of the Holy Apostles in Forth Worth, Texas, to the North Christian Church in Columbus, Indiana. Doug Adams affirms artist-in-residence programs as messy. The issue also announces the publication of Homemade Midrash, by Jo Milgrom (Philadelphia: Jewish Publication Society). Sandra Longfellow provides an index for volume four.
