Product Description

More and more churches are bringing works of art into their buildings in order to enhance their worship and provide a focus for prayer and reflection. This book explores the relationship between religion and the visual arts and provides advice on how to commission works of art, how to place them, and how to hold art exhibitions in church. In this book, Anne Dawtry and Christopher Irvine survey the theological agenda for art and the Church. The authors also explore the need for communication between the Church and artists and for skill and sensitivity to the artistic dimension of worship. This book offers practical examples in commissioning works of art and shows how worship itself is art, a creative expression of our adoration and praise of God.
