In What Way is Art a Gift, a Calling, and an Obedience?

Have a great idea?

What topics would you like HCI to cover in the near future?

By Andy Crouch  |  Tuesday 1 April 2008

In what way, that is, does art tell us about the nature of God (that everything is gift), the nature of human beings (that we are made in the image of a Gift-giver), and the nature of earth-tilling and Gospel-living (that we are responsible servants who have been commissioned to make artistic culture in the context of a fallen world)?

Our desire here is to help pastors understand the relation of art to God, to ourselves as humans, and to our calling as culture-makers, filling the earth with artistic goodness one square inch at a time. This talk is foundational in nature and is presupposed by the remainder of the plenary talks in the Transforming Culture recordings.
