1) Art and the Bible (IVP Classics)
The late Francis A. Schaeffer authored more than twenty books, which have been translated into a score of languages and sold millions worldwide. His Art and the Bible shines a light on the Bible’s strong affirmation of the arts via classic essays. Published by IVP Classics, it’s a short read (less than 100 pages), but a powerful entry-point for thinking biblically about art and artistry.
2) Art for God’s Sake: A Call to Recover the Arts
Art for God’s Sake: A Call to Recover the Arts, by Dr. Philip Graham Ryken – the 8th president of Wheaton College – examines the major issue of the arts for all who seek answers. Published by P & R Publishing, it is less than seventy pages, but still a solid resource that aids in nurturing a deeper understanding of the arts and assists in cultivating a Biblical worldview and theology of the arts.
3) Imagine: A Vision for Christians in the Arts
Steve Turner – a music journalist and poet living in London – creates a bold vision in the highly unique Imagine: A Vision for Christians in the Arts. Tuner wants us to imagine and then work towards Christians being involved in every level of the art world and in every media. This compelling book is an excellent and inspiring resource for Christians who want to make a difference in the world through their art.

4) For the Beauty of the Church: Casting a Vision for the Arts
For the Beauty of the Church: Casting a Vision for the Arts is an expansive vision for the church and the arts from Eugene Peterson, Lauren Winner, Jeremy Begbie, Andy Crouch, and John Witvliet. An excellent resource for all those in pastoral or worship ministry, artists of all kinds and believers who feel no connection to the arts (and wonder why churches should bother with them at all).
5) The Gift: Creativity and the Artist in the Modern World
The Gift: Creativity and the Artist in the Modern World, by Lewis Hyde – a MacArthur Fellow and former director of creative writing at Harvard – is a modern classic and defense of the value of creativity. A masterpiece for human beings trapped and hypnotized by the modern world of commerce, it reveals the mystery of accessing the Creative Spirit within us all.
