Summary:

"The lordship of Christ should include an interest in the
arts," writes Francis Schaeffer. "A Christian should use
these arts to the glory of God, not just as tracts, mind
you, but as things of beauty to the praise of God."Many
Christians, wary of creating graven images, have steered
clear of artistic creativity. But the Bible offers a robust
affirmation of the arts. The human impulse to create
reflects our being created in the image of a creator God.

Art and the Bible has been a foundational work for
generations of Christians in the arts. In this book's classic
essays, Francis Schaeffer first examines the scriptural
record of the use of various art forms, and then establishes
a Christian perspective on art. With clarity and vigor,
Schaeffer explains why "the Christian is the one whose
imagination should fly beyond the stars."
