In this classic book, Madeleine L'Engle addresses the questions, What makes art Christian? What does it mean to be a Christian artist? What is the relationship between faith and art? Through L'Engle's beautiful and insightful essay, readers will find themselves called to what the author views as the prime tasks of an artist: to listen, to remain aware, and to respond to creation through one's own art.

An excellent book for artists.
Date:March 7, 2012
Most people are familiar with Madeleine L'Engle as an author of the childrens' books, A Wrinkle in Time and A Wind At the Door, but, like me, were unaware of her books for adults. I had recently re-read A Wind at the Door, having read it several times years ago to my own children, and was enthralled again with the way she handled such ponderous ideas of life and faith. While visiting Christianbooks.com, looking for copies of another book, I thankfully now, "happened upon" this little book of essays for artists. It was on sale and I'm an artist, so I thought, "Why not?". Little did I know what was in store for me...treasures beyond measure! This book will be a friend for a lifetime and I will continure to revisit it for guidance, encouragement, insight and refreshment in my artistic life.
