Publisher's Description

“The double question we must always ask is,‘How does faith inform art?’ and ‘How can art animate faith?’”

Imagination, appreciation of beauty, creativity: all of these qualities have been given to us by God. For the Christian artist, the drive to create something wonderful is also a means to glorify and better understand our Lord. Using excerpts from her own works as well as those of writers who have gone before her—Emily Dickinson, Annie Dillard, C.S. Lewis, and others—poet and writer Luci Shaw proves that symbolism and metaphor provide ways for humans to experience God in new and powerful ways.

Shaw offers a rich and thought-provoking exploration of art, creativity, and faith. Believing that art emanates from God, she shows how imagination and spirituality “work in tandem, each feeding on and nourishing the other.” Faith informs art and art enhances faith. They both, for each other, are “breath for the bones.”

Provocative, enlightening, and above all, inspiring, Breath for the Bones will help readers discover the artist within, and bring them further along the path to God Himself.

Include s Discussion Questions and Writing Exercises

Author Bio

Luci Shaw, Gold Medallion award-winning author of Horizons: Exploring Creation, and Water My Soul, brings to her wide reading public the fruit of years of pondering and enacting the vital link between the writer of faith and the God of Creation. Life-long interaction with colleagues such as Philip Yancey, Madeleine L'Engle, Eugene Peterson and Walt Wangerin play into the links she makes between faith and art. Readers around the world have responded to her lectures, essays and poetry. She challenges all of us to re-think how faith informs art and art can animate faith. Here is a fresh breath of encouragement to imaginative minds...a clear guide to the theological framework of creativity and the call for active participation in God's own creative life.
