What's inside

Head over to Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and choose one of the top 10 most popular songs.

From the guide

In a postmodern, skeptical world, we generally defend Christianity in terms of truth or apologetics, but beauty also belongs to the Christian faith. Beauty has a way of sneaking past defenses and speaking in unique ways about truth, goodness, and God. To a generation suspicious of truth claims and unconvinced by moral or ethical assertions, beauty has a surprising and disarming allure. A Christianity that is deeply enchanted by beauty has the opportunity to offer a skeptical world an
aspect of truth that has been long forgotten. Where truth and goodness might fail to win the audience, beauty may once again captivate the soul.
