What People Are Saying

Borger, Byron
Brand new, this is a glorious, hip, well-produced, insightful and altogether spectacular contribution to the advancement of the Kingdom of God in the field of the arts. It is a uniquely Christian contribution to the art world and I don't think it is an overstatement to term it nearly historic.
— Hearts and Mind Books
Makoto Fujimura
I had been trapped underground and cut off from everyone and my cell phone wasn’t working, but walking back to my studio that day, not knowing if my wife and children were safe, I had this strange sense of shalom, that God was still fully in control .....There are ground zeros in everyone’s life and we have to recognize that grace flows out of that reality .....As artists we are part of a rich history of the visual record of these journeys through the darkness that help us even today to find hope.”
Sandra Bowden
As Christians recite the Nicene Creed which affirms that we believe in “the visible and the invisible; the artist lives out that creed making visible the invisible. . . As an artist, my faith has given me the freedom to search and to explore. This rich spiritual life has enhanced my work as an artist.
— president of Christians in the Visual Arts, talks about the place of art in the life of the church.
Tim Rollins
Many people new to contemporary art are bemused, perplexed, even angered by it. Many non-believers have a similar cynicism when they observe people praying. But if you do believe, and have faith in God, you know what prayer can do, and you have seen the effect of prayer in your life and in the lives of others. . . You bring faith to art as you do to God since great art is an instrument of God.”
