What People are saying about this

From the Publisher

“The virtues of this book are immediately evident. It asks the right questions, provides the right answers, and illustrates the claims made about art and music with analysis of examples—all within a context of the Christian faith and the Bible.”
Leland Ryken, Emeritus Professor of English, Wheaton College

“Drake and Munson know that our minds and imaginations require training to work as intended. They know that failure to cultivate eyes to see and ears to hear prevents us from perceiving the glory of God’s creation in great works of art and music. Their book offers courageous instruction for those open to attending to beauty.”
Ken Myers, Director, Mars Hill Audio

“This incredibly thought-provoking book illustrates the relationship between art, music, and spirituality. In our day, it is particularly important to highlight these connections and provide an overall view. I am intrigued by the authors’ insights, and others will be as well. I enthusiastically recommend this book.”
Manfred Honeck, Music Director, Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra
