Schaeffer ☆ 0 FREE DOWNLOAD FREE DOWNLOAD Art and the Bible 100 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 steere. This little book had me scribbling notes and underlining furiously the whole way through It was excellent There were so many times when I couldn t resist laughing in joy as I read Just the very first words on the very first page are dynamite I also really liked what he said about great art and the necessity for judging art not only on how well it is done but by what message is taught That is a needed message in our day and he delineated that so well See pages 43 45I did however disagree with Dr Schaeffer on one point In the last section he claims that In one way styles are completely neutral pg 56And again let me say firmly that there is no such thing as a godly style or an ungodly style He uses the example of rock music to support his claim Let us say for example that you are playing in a Christian rock group Suppose further that you are going into coffee houses and using rock as a bridge to preach the Christian message That is fine But then you must be careful of the feedback When you are finished playing have the people heard your messageHis view is that while a style in itself is not godly or ungodly that the style has a relation to the messageStyles themselves are developed as a symbol or vehicle for a certain worldview or message pg 52While this is very true he is missing the even deeper level that the styles in themselves teach a message That is the very reason why the artist chooses it in the first place whether they consciously realize that fact or not So while Dr Schaeffer admits that the style reflects the artists worldview he does not believe that the style has an intrinsic messageI disagree with this position because I believe that it ignores an important fact God created our world and we cannot escape the fact that there is a message that is necessarily carried in the form or method Art bridges the divide created by language and speaks unmistakably to everyoneThis is the same in all times and cultures Surely there are differing degrees to this but heavy metal music communicates in the style itself a message Forms methods and vehicles themselves are not neutral They too carry a message This to me seems to be in opposition to all the truths he so beautifully and clearly lays out in the book Still apart from this small section I agreed most heartily with everything else His distinctively Christian worldview is refreshing in a time when many do not understand the significance of the tie between worldview and aestheticscultureExcerpt from the bookDespite our constant talk about the lordship of Christ we have narrowed its scope to a very small area of reality We have misunderstood the concept of the lordship of Christ over the whole man and the whole of the universe and have not taken to us the riches that the Bible gives us for ourselves for our lives and for our culture

Schaeffer ☆ 0 FREE DOWNLOAD FREE DOWNLOAD Art and the Bible 100 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. A helpful read Schaeffer has a lot of very thought through and helpful things to say on the relationship between Christianity and the arts and on being a Christian artist Though dated a bit now I m not aware of a 21st century euivalent that s better Schaeffer uotes the bible often enough and the gospel is present though I wouldn t describe it as a gospel centred approach and therefore I was left wanting Still plenty of helpful stuff to take away and I ll be adding it to my list of recommended reading for young artists who want to think about being a Christian and an artist at the same time

Francis A. Schaeffer ☆ 0 FREE DOWNLOAD FREE DOWNLOAD Art and the Bible 100 D 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'. In Art in the Bible Schaeffer states The lordship of Christ over the whole of life means that there are no platonic areas in Christianity no dichotomy or hierarch between the body and the soul God made the body as well as the soul and redemption is for the whole man Schaeffer very clearly presents the fact that Christianity involves the whole man including his intellect and creativeness These are not periphery side areas these are the central areas The arts and the sciences all have a central place in the Christian life He is also clear to point out the fact that any artist painter sculptor writer or musician makes a body of work that clearly reflects and displays his or her world view He also challenges modern Christianity by saying that Christian art is by no means always religious art that is art which deals with religious themes Christian music is not simply music that is played on Christian radio stations but music where Christians are reflecting their world view and often times not explicitly saying the word God His point is that No work of art is important than the Christian s own life and every Christian is cared upon to be an artist in this sense He may have no gift of writing no gift of composing or singing but each man has the gift of creativity in terms of the way he lives his life In this sense the Christian s life is to be an art work The Christian s life is to be a thing of truth and also a thing of beauty in the midst of a lost and despairing world This is a great book short and easy to read and highly recommended for anyone with any interest in the reality of Christ in our culture
