Product Description

God made us to enjoy beauty wherever we find it, whether it's music or the visual arts. But sin finds ways to obscure what is right in front of our eyes and ears.

Drawing on years of teaching experience, two professors offer tips for understanding, evaluating, and appreciating art in all its forms while highlighting the important ways in which art and music reflect the glory of God. Art and Music: A Student's Guide will help you better understand and appreciate humanity's pursuit and imitation of beauty through artistic expression - a vital means by which we bear witness to the beauty of our Creator.

Author Bio

Paul Munson (PhD, University of Michigan) is professor of music at Grove City College. With Joshua Drake, he maintains the website

Joshua Farris Drake (PhD, University of Glasgow) is professor of music and humanities at Grove City College. He is the coeditor of Joshua and his wife, Vicki, have four children.

David S. Dockery (PhD, University of Texas) is the chancellor of Trinity International University in Deerfield, Illinois, following five years as president. He is a much-sought-after speaker and lecturer, a consulting editor for Christianity Today, and the author or editor of more than thirty books. Dockery and his wife, Lanese, have three sons and seven grandchildren.


The virtues of this book are immediately evident. It asks the right questions, provides the right answers, and illustrates the claims made about art and music with analysis of examples - all within a context of the Christian faith and the Bible.
-Leland Ryken,
Emeritus Professor of English, Wheaton College

Drake and Munson know that our minds and imaginations require training to work as intended. They know that failure to cultivate eyes to see and ears to hear prevents us from perceiving the glory of GodÂ’s creation in great works of art and music. Their book offers courageous instruction for those open to attending to beauty.
-Ken Myers,
Director, Mars Hill Audio

This incredibly thought-provoking book illustrates the relationship between art, music, and spirituality. In our day, it is particularly important to highlight these connections and provide an overall view. I am intrigued by the authors' insights, and others will be as well. I enthusiastically recommend this book.
-Manfred Honeck,
Music Director, Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra
