From a world-renowned painter, an exploration of creativity’s quintessential—and often overlooked—role in the spiritual lifeWritten over thirty years of painting and creating in his studio, this book is Makoto Fujimura’s broad and deep exploration of creativity and the spiritual aspects of “making.” What he does in the studio, he asserts, is theological work as much as it is aesthetic work. In between pouring precious, pulverized minerals onto handmade paper to create the prismatic, refractive surfaces of his art, he comes into the quiet space in the studio, in a discipline of awareness, waiting, prayer, and praise. Ranging from the Bible to T. S. Eliot, and from Mark Rothko to Japanese Kintsugi technique, he shows how unless we are making something, we cannot know the depth of God’s being and God’s grace permeating our lives. This poignant and beautiful book offers the perspective of, in Christian Wiman’s words, “an accidental theologian,” one who comes to spiritual questions always through the prism of art.

From a world-renowned painter, an exploration of creativity's quintessential--and often overlooked--role in the spiritual life "Makoto Fujimura is the rare artist whose life has something of the same purifying and galvanizing force of his work. His new book brings those two elements--life and art--even closer together, and is a real tonic for our atomized time." --Christian Wiman Conceived over thirty years of painting and creating in his studio, this book is Makoto Fujimura's broad and deep exploration of creativity and the spiritual aspects of "making." What he does in the studio is theological work as much as it is aesthetic work. In between pouring precious, pulverized minerals onto handmade paper to create the prismatic, refractive surfaces of his art, he comes into the quiet space in the studio, in a discipline of awareness, waiting, prayer, and praise.

For hundreds of years the church has taught that in order to live fully a person must have right belief (orthodoxy) and right practice (orthopraxy), and yet this is an insufficient theology. By failing to consider the importance of right mystery and beauty, we are only getting at part of the story.Art and Faith is a commentary on the crisis of imagination happening in the modern church. In a book informed by the narrative of Beggars Table, a community that meets in a gallery in Kansas City's Arts District, author Jon Bowles moves us past superficial suggestions for arts programming and into a conversation about the meaning and formation of awe.

Excerpt from Art and Faith, in Fragments From the Great Exhibition of Arts and Manufactures in 1851 In pursuing these objects, I have referred less frequently to bare infidelity and its assertions, than to the more danger one form of unbelief, originating, perhaps, ln Germany, and Spreading among numerous classes in this country; which divides the Bible into parts, accepting and rejecting them according to the convenience or the prejudice of the indivi dual; constitutes reason the grand referee on questions of faith, rejecting all that it cannot comprehend; and having imbibed a false-interpretation of Nature, deems many. Doc trines in the written Revelation opposed to facts in the Re velation of Creation and Providence, or, as otherwise express ed, in the works of Creation and Providence. Holding that reason is a good guide, so far as it goes, I desired to point out the obvious truth that a Scriptural statement is not opposed to, because it may not be comprehended by, reason; for on that rule we must reject those facts occurring hourly and daily in Nature, which reason cannot comprehend or science ex plain; and to direct attention, on the evidence furnished by the materials of Art and Industry, for the idea that the written Revelation is confirmed and reflected in the Revelation of works. The various tracts were written in the intervals of other engagements which chiefly occupied my time, and pre vented, along with other causes already stated, the adoption of a systematic arrangement.

PURSUING CHRIST. CREATING ART. is written for people who are living in the intersection of the Christian faith, and the creation of art. By their nature, artists look at a life of faith differently, and that unique journey warrants an exploration of what it means to be a Christ-follower and an artist. The book intentionally veers away from tips and techniques and formulas, while concentrating on the journey, the mystery, and the heart.

Not long after Martin Luther’s defiance of the Church in 1517, dialogue between Protestants and Catholics broke down, brother turned against brother, and devastating religious wars erupted across Europe. Desperate to restore the peace and recover the unity of Faith, Catholic theologians clarified and reaffirmed Catholic doctrines, but turned as well to another form of evangelization: the Arts. Convinced that to win over the unlettered, the best place to fight heresy was not in the streets but in stone and on canvas, they enlisted the century’s best artists to create a glorious wave of beautiful works of sacred art — Catholic works of sacred art — to draw people together instead of driving them apart. How Catholic Art Saved the Faith tells the story of the creation and successes of this vibrant, visual-arts SWAT team whose war cry could have been “art for Faith’s sake!” Over the years, it included Michelangelo, of course, and, among other great artists, the edgy Caravaggio, the graceful Guido Reni, the technically perfect Annibale Carracci, the colorful Barocci, the theatrical Bernini, and the passionate Artemisia Gentileschi. Each of these creative souls, despite their own interior struggles, was a key player in this magnificent, generations-long project: the affirmation through beauty of the teachings of the Holy Catholic Church. Here you will meet the fascinating artists who formed this cadre’s core. You will revel in scores of their full-color paintings. And you will profit from the lucid explanations of their lovely creations: works that over the centuries have touched the hearts and deepened the faith of millions of pilgrims who have made their way to the Eternal City to gaze upon them. Join those pilgrims now in an encounter with the magnificent artworks of the Catholic Restoration — artworks which from their conception were intended to delight, teach, and inspire. As they have done for the faith of so many, so will they do for you.
