Discovering God through the Arts Review

Book Review: 

Discovering God Through the Arts: How We Can Grow Closer to God by Appreciating Beauty and Creativity is a delightful book by Terry W. Glaspey. It focuses on how to incorporate the arts into building Christian faith and spiritual formation, while discovering the inspiring aspects of the arts in everyday life.

Christians and churches tend to regulate music to praise and worship songs during services, display paintings as wall decor, and watch films as casual entertainment. However, the arts may also serve as an even more prominent focus in life. The author shares how to use the arts in everyday life on a spiritual level, such incorporating various forms of the arts into daily prayer time or to further develop theological ideas, as well as dealing with emotions and the feeling of wonder in beauty or creativity.

It's an enjoyable book, especially for those (like me) who want to take time to deepen inspirational faith with the arts.

I received this book from Moody, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
