Shaw, Luci (Author)

Description

The double questionwe must always ask is, How does faith inform art? and How can art animate faith?

Imagination, appreciation of beauty, creativity: all of these qualities have beengiven to us by God. For the Christian artist, the drive to create somethingwonderful is also a means to glorify and better understand our Lord. Usingexcerpts from her own works as well as those of writers who have gone beforeher Emily Dickinson, Annie Dillard, C.S. Lewis, and others poet and writerLuci Shaw proves that symbolism and metaphor provide ways for humans toexperience God in new and powerful ways.

Shaw offers a rich and thought-provoking exploration of art, creativity, andfaith. Believing that art emanates from God, she shows how imagination andspirituality work in tandem, each feeding on and nourishing the other. Faithinforms art and art enhances faith. They both, for each other, are breath forthe bones.

Provocative, enlightening, and above all, inspiring, Breath for the Boneswillhelp readers discover the artist within, and bring them further along the pathto God Himself.
