Example text

Beauty points away from the present world to a different one altogether. For the Beauty of the Earth 45 This suggestion is attractive—at one level. It does indeed make sense of a good part of our experience. But for the three great monotheistic religions at least (or most mainstream versions of them) it gives away far too much. It’s all very well to say that beauty in this present world is puzzling, transient, and sometimes apparently only skin deep, while underneath all is worms and rottenness.

Nor is it only children who stubbornly resist the new rules. Those who target magazines at different groups in society have no difficulty in producing “men’s magazines” that very few women would buy, and “women’s magazines” that hardly any men would read. The circulation of such magazines goes from strength to strength, even in those countries where the propaganda about gender identity has been strong for decades. In most countries, of course, nobody bothers to try to pretend that men and women are identical and interchangeable.

The things that don’t make sense at the moment will display a harmony and perfection we hadn’t dreamed of. The points at which today the music seems almost perfect, lacking just one small thing, will be completed. That is the promise held out in the story. Just as, in one of the New Testament’s greatest claims, the kingdoms of this world are to become the kingdom of God, so the beauty of this world will be enfolded in the beauty of God—and not just the beauty of God himself, but the beauty which, because God is the creator par excellence, he will create when the present world is rescued, healed, restored, and completed.
