Architecture and Theology
Learning to read a building’s nonverbal language
Jesus once said, “Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God” (Matt. 4:4). Though this saying has become one of His most well known, do we really consume every word God prepares on His table before us?
Our heavenly Father speaks to us through literary language, such as in the Scriptures, yet He also communicates with us through nonverbal language. He speaks through performance arts, visual arts, and—believe it or not—even architecture. Through the fine art of architecture, we may hear new “words” coming from the “mouth” of God.
