"From the Publisher:" Uses well known and lesser known paintings to show modern art's reflection of a dying culture and how Christian attitudes can create hope in current society. Paperback, 256 pages.
This disturbing but illuminating classic is a brilliant perspective on the cultural turmoil of the radical sixties and its impact on today's world, especially as reflected in the art of the time. Rookmaaker's enduring analysis looks at modern art in a broad historical, social, and philosophical context, laying bare the despair and nihilism that pervade our era. He also shows the role Christian artists can play in proclaiming truth through their work.
Rookmaaker's brilliant articulation of faith and scholarship is insightful and inspiring. The book moves freely and with a sense of urgency between the worlds of high culture, popular art and music, and Christian faith.
This reissue makes his foundational work available to a new generation.
"A landmark book in the story of contemporary Christians in the arts." --Os Guinness, author of The American Hour
