Hand to Hand free pdf A leading philosopher and theologian, Jean-Louis Chretien uses poetry and painting to explore a theme that runs through all of his work: how human life is shaped by the experience of call and response. For Chretien, we live by responding to the call of experience with words, gestures, expressions and silence. In meditations on Rembrandt, Delacroix, Manet, Verlaine, Keats and other artists, Chretien shows how "talking hands of painters" and the "secretly lucid" voices of poets confront the finitude of the human body. "Hand to Hand" is a renewal of art in all its provocative, transforming, spiritual presence.
