    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Stimulating must-read for Christian Artists

    This very brief book is a pithy, head-on approach to the question of reconciling art and pleasing God. It deals with relevant questions like: must art be of religious subjects to glorify God, is there such a thing as a Christian style of art, what makes art good. I am very thankful that Mr. Shaeffer put his thoughts down on paper for others to enjoy.

    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Schaeffer uses big-picture view to discuss art

    If you've read any of Schaeffer's books you know that the foundation of his Christian beliefs is the idea that God's ultimate reality implies that the spiritual life applies to every aspect of human life. In "Art and the Bible" Schaeffer works from this premise to discuss the subject of art and it's place in life. He begins by identifying places in the Bible where references are made to art, and he analyzes each in detail to identify deeper meaning and implications. Later Schaeffer offers some perspectives on art. Especially relevant is his analysis that art projects a world view. He maintains that as Christians are to do in every other area of life, a Christian artist has the opportunity and obligation to project the Christian worldview through the his/her body of work. As part of this discussion Schaeffer asserts that since the ultimate reality of God is really truth itself, the worldview projected by a piece of art is one of the standards by which art may be judged (he identifies three others: technical excellence, validity-honesty to one's self and worldview, and the integration of content and vehicle). Schaeffer's detailed examination of what art is, does, and how art does what it does provides an extremely useful perspective from which to view the subject. I highly recommend this book.
