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 Gods creation in great works of art and music. Their book offers courageous instruction for those open to attending to beauty.

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.
