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."

Francis A. Schaeffer founded the L'Abri Fellowship in Switzerland and was the author of many books. Until his death in 1984, he was also a noted speaker with a worldwide ministry. His ministry continues through his books, with over two million copies in print.Card is an award-winning musician, performing artist, music producer, and author. A graduate of Western Kentucky University with a BA and MA in biblical studies, Card is currently at work on a Ph.D. in classical literature. Card lives in Tennessee with his wife and four children.

    Short, but profound! Schaeffer has a gift for stripping away the gilding of a pretentious spirituality to reveal Christianity's natural ability to allow man to be all he was created to be.
