This book is a wonderful introduction to some of the great artistic achievements of artists whose faith has enriched and inspired their works in a number of ways. These works of art, music, writing, and films extend from the very beginning of the church to the present time.
This newly revised version in paperback includes 20 more pages that the first edition and expands some of the pictures of the artwork featured. These works of art are not advertisements for Christianity, but are simply recording the truth as the artist saw and felt it. As the author puts it, “Art can reach places in the human heart that reasoned argument can never penetrate.”
Each masterpiece and the story behind it can be read as a daily devotional, as a reference book when wanting to refer to a particular work or straight through the entire book. However you choose to read it, the stories are as fascinating as are the great works they describe.
I received this book from Moody Publishers in exchange for this honest review.
