Extremely comprehensive and extremely well written. These authors know their art, they know their culture, they know their theology, and they know how to write. It's a little more academic than I was expecting, but it's done so well that it's hard to complain. It's somewhat focused on the fine art/visual art world, but they do an impressive job of relating everything to every form of art.

I found this book to be mostly just restating the questions that Christian artists have, rather than providing any good answers. The insights that did come out were based off of quotes from other creatives (C.S. Lewis, Franky Schaeffer, Calvin Seerveld, Dorothy Sayers, Hans Rookmaaker, to name a few), so really the quotes in the margins were the best part of the book.

4.5 stars. A great book that offers a lot of info, history, examples and theological thinking about the arts. I found it to be engaging, thought-provoking, as well as practical. A good read for anyone interested in the topic of Theology and the Arts.
