Brehm Center and Fortress Press to Publish Book Series on Art and Religion


Fuller Seminary is thrilled to announce the upcoming publication of a series of books in collaboration with Fortress Press and Fuller’s Brehm Center for Worship, Theology, and the Arts. The series will be co-edited by Kutter Callaway, assistant professor of theology and culture, and Barry Taylor, affiliate faculty member and Brehm Center artist-in-residence. The series will investigate the leading edge of contemporary engagements between art, culture, and religion, and topics will include film, visual art, aesthetics, and music.

Callaway, the author of Watching TV Religiously, said, “The promise of this series is that it will go beyond the conventional church-and-culture conversation to really push the boundaries of what religion means and how it functions in our current cultural environment.” Callaway continued, “I look forward to publishing books by innovators and artists, theologians and cultural critics.”

Will Bergkamp, publisher at Fortress Press, expressed enthusiasm for the project: “Fuller Theological Seminary has long been a preeminent institution in global Christianity, and we anticipate great books to come from this partnership. Fortress’s Theology for the People line aims to make theological conversations available to all readers, so working with the Brehm Center is a perfect fit for us.”

Fortress Press is planning a robust marketing campaign around the books, and they plan to partner with the Brehm Center to host events at Fuller’s campuses.
