Art and Soul PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Art and Soul free pdf More Christians than ever before are studying and working professionally in the arts - but how to do it with integrity, Christian grit and in the language of our time? This practical introductory textbook is seasoned with quotes from artists, critics and philosophers, and animated with 51 b/w illustrations representing visual art, architecture, music, poetry, drama, media and film. The authors make a quick tour through the history of western art and culture. They identify the roots that led to our current post-modern condition, as well as the sometimes strained relations between the church and artists. They examine the implications of the biblical themes of a good Creation, a perverting Fall and the reality of Redemption for the aesthetic dimension of life. They also look at the way we interpret and interact with art - why does art matter? And how can different approaches to art make art work for us in different ways? Finally they have bold advice and encouragement for Christians involved in the arts or considering an artistic career.
