Description of Art and Faith: Reclaiming the Artistic Essence of the Church by Jon Bowles

As our culture becomes increasingly utilitarian and bottom-line driven, the significance of artistic expression quietly gets pushed to the margins. Unfortunately, this trend is often seen within the Church itself as faith and art are progressively torn apart and treated as separate worlds.

Art and Faith addresses the tension between artistic expression and genuine faith. Through story and questions, author Jon Bowles explores how and why art is paramount to spiritual formation, the church experience, and our continual endeavor to become more fully human. This resource unpacks a theology of faith and art that has emerged from Bowles's community at Beggars Table, a church that makes its home in an art gallery.

Regardless of whether your church meets in an art gallery, a traditional sanctuary, or a school gymnasium, this book will move you beyond superficial programs that incorporate art to discussions on the implications of a church that truly engages the arts.
