Elizabeth Hostetter5 Stars Out Of 5July 1, 2008Elizabeth HostetterAs a music professor at a Christian college, I ordered this book for our college library. I found it very stimulating and especially useful for the Christian college student and/or scholar. It is wide in scope, covering music, visual art, and literature, and makes a strong case for the Christian artist to be engaged in the secular arts culture in a postive way, rather than exclusionist. I initially thought I would be primarily interested in the essays regarding music. However, I found the essays regarding the visual arts the most stimulating. For those who limit theology and arts to the narrow confines of "Christian music" or syrupy art of the sort you find in Christian bookstores, this book is not for you. I applaud Wheaton College for having a conference of this scope and importance. Based on the declining appreciation for the arts in our churches, I would recommend that this book could even be a thoughtful study for small groups in the church who are interested in reclaiming art for the church and society.
