Product Description

"The lordship of Christ should include an interest in the arts," writes Francis Schaeffer. "A Christian should use these arts to the glory of God, not just as tracts, mind you, but as things of beauty to the praise of God." Many Christians, wary of creating graven images, have steered clear of artistic creativity. But the Bible offers a robust affirmation of the arts. The human impulse to create reflects our being created in the image of a creator God. Art and the Bible has been a foundational work for generations of Christians in the arts. In this book's classic essays, Francis Schaeffer first examines the scriptural record of the use of various art forms, and then establishes a Christian perspective on art. With clarity and vigor, Schaeffer explains why "the Christian is the one whose imagination should fly beyond the stars."

From AudioFile

With her delightful British accent, Nadia May delivers the fervent devotion of theologian Francis Schaeffer. Schaeffer, the founder of LÕAbri Fellowship in Switzerland, is well known among evangelicals for his intellectual approach to Christianity. In this audiobook he addresses the importance and relevance of art in Christian thought and life. He covers all forms, including music, painting, poetry, and dance, all mentioned in the Bible. Schaeffer believes that Christians should use their God-given creativity to find purpose and meaning in their lives. Narrator May recounts SchaefferÕs thinking with clarity and passion. This is a fascinating book because of the challenging ideas of the author and the charm of the performer.
