Ideal values in Christian art serve as personality patterns. These ideal patterns serve as a basis upon which may be constructed the structure of Christian personality. Albrecht Durer's "Praying Hands" illustrate the entire Brightman cycle of contemplation, revelation, communion, and fruition. Through the use of Christian art in worship ideal values and inspirational beauty may lead the worshiper to an integrated worship experience. Thus the ultimate goal of personality is the "community of Love" which constitutes Jesus' idea of the Kingdom of God within human personality.
