The Faithful Artist: A Vision for Evangelicalism and the Arts | Cameron J. Anderson
1 post | 1 read | 1 to read
The tension between Christianity and the arts is often real. But it also offers a false dichotomy. Many Christian artists think that they must choose between their faith and their artistic calling. Drawing upon his experiences as both a Christian and a practicing artist, Cameron J. Anderson explores the dynamics of faith and art in this latest volume in IVP Academic s Studies in Theology and the Arts series. Tracing the relationship between evangelicalism and modern art in postwar Americatwo entities that often found themselves at odds with each otherAnderson raises several issues that confront artists. With skill, sensitivity and insight, he considers questions such as the role of our bodies and our senses in our experience of the arts, the relationship between text and image, the persistent dangers of idolatry, the possibility of pursuing God through an encounter with beauty and more. Throughout this study, Anderson's principal concern is how Christian artists can faithfully pursue their vocational calling in contemporary culture. Readers will find here not only an informed and thoughtful response, but also a vision that offers guidance and hope.

Interesting book discussing how art is viewed within the evangelical perspective. Even if the reader isn‘t evangelical, it‘s a helpful perspective in regard to a large number of US Christians.

Tomigirl44 @BBooks I hesitate to post some of the religious books I‘ve been reading, as they‘re not mainstream books, but I figure someone else (like you! 😁) may find them interesting. I got to be in a small group conversation with this author a few days ago - really neat person, and enjoyed hearing more about his journey/experience subsequent to his book. 2y
