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.

About the Author:

Hilary Brand is Chair of the Arts Centre Group.

Review:

"Hilary Brand and Adrienne Chaplin have produced an academic but delightfully written book designed to fill a significant need for students who are contemplating a career or some active involvement in the arts. It is addressed to participants in all of the arts--visual, music, theatre, film or any combination of the above--as well as interested observers and consumers of art. . . . "I have used Art & Soul as a text for a Senior Seminar in the visual arts, and it was enthusiastically received by students. Its usefulness, however, is certainly not limited to the classroom: anyone involved in music, theatre, film or the visual arts will find a wealth of stimulating material for inspiration and discussion on a variety of levels. I have found this book to be the most valuable addition to my library in a long time." (Joanne Alberda, Dort College, in Pro Rege)
