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. Download and start listening now!

    " Short and sweet and to the point, but very good. Schaeffer's vision was on-target, by and large, though he got a little hung up at times on conveying propositional truth through art. Thus, his rejection of art-as-tract is right, but as a cultural project his vision failed at least in part because it wasn't truly coherent in his own writing here. Still, this should be on the required reading shelf for any would-be Christian artist. "

    " Awesome book about reviving a Christian aesthetic. Must-read for any Christian artist (especially Thomas Kinkade). "

    " Good book, lays the christian worldview foundation for an understanding of art in culture. This book leaves you wanting more and more can be found as the best book on this subject I have read is "Art and the Death of Culture" by Rookmaaker who studied under Schaeffer at L'Abri. Schaeffer was a generalist and can be forgiven for not having the extensive knowledge of art Rookmaaker had. "
