Beauty: What It Is and Why It Matters

Aelred C. Bautista, Ph. D.



Written from a Catholic and Christian perspective, Beauty: What It Is and Why It Matters is a timely and novel reminder for Christians to review their moral obligation to pursue beauty. It is the writer John Mark Miravalle’s conviction, as a theologian, that the imperative to pursue and take delight in the beautiful accompanies, and is essential to, living a Christian life. In doing so, we are led to our salvation, filled with Truth, Goodness, Beauty, and God. It is possible to lead a virtuous life that is a beautiful or “beauty full” life as well.
