Text: 75 Masterpieces Every Christian Should Know, by Terry Glaspey
Can beauty be a way to God? Can art spark faith? Yes! Good art has a transcendent effect. Art can stir our conscience, give us hope, melt a hard heart, let us glimpse the divine. In creating good art, we reflect the image of the one who created all things—the One who built a universe and said “it is good.”
For centuries in the West, Christians were leaders in the art world, commissioning plays, paintings, music and more from talented artists. Today, gifted artists continue to create works that help us encounter God’s glorious and merciful presence.This course will examine some of the great artistic achievements, old and new, that have moved the hearts of many. Join us in the experience!
"Art must touch our lives, our fears and cares – evoke our dreams and give hope to the darkness." Frederick Hart
