Though numerous studies have examined biblical and theological rationales for the use of visual arts in worship, Lisa DeBoer's Visual Arts in the Worshiping Church fills in a piece of the picture missing thus far—the social dimensions of both our churches and the various art worlds represented in our congregations.
DeBoer first examines Orthodoxy, Catholicism, and Protestantism in turn—including case studies of specific congregations—showing how each tradition's use of the visual arts reveals an underlying ecclesiology. She then focuses on six themes that emerge when Orthodox, Catholic, and Protestant uses of the visual arts are examined together—the arts as expressions of the church's local and universal character, the meanings attributed to particular styles of art for the church, the role of the arts in enculturating the gospel, and more.DeBoer's Visual Arts in the Worshiping Church will focus and deepen the thinking of pastors, worship leaders, artists, students, and laypeople regarding what the arts might do in the midst of their congregations.
