One of the things he discusses is the use of darkness and light, especially in depicting Christ, like in this Rembrandt:
Now take a look at this Supper at Emmaus by Rembrandt, not to mention this popular painting of Christ walking on the water. Perhaps the former example might come off a bit spooky in the estimation of some, but the device itself is strikingly gorgeous.
Another topic is the use of symbolism and abstraction in art, which apparently is discouraged by the temple art guidelines. Interesting, given the use of symbolism and abstraction in the REST of the temple experience!
