The goal of this book is to provide a deeper discussion of what abeliever practicing their discipline for Gods glory would (or should)look like. Rather than a defense of the believers place in thearts -- which has been done very well in other works -- this book is intendedto be primarily about art MAKING.The premise of this work is that a Christian looks at the worlddifferently than the non-christian due to a restored relationship withthe Creator. Imagine a christian sitting down to create a piece ofpottery, write a novel or paint a picture. This believer has decisionsto make: color, form, content, theme...

as well as where they fit intotheir church and larger community. Of course this book cant dictatethings such as, Paint a red bird... write the song in standard time...the pot should have three handles.... But decisions do need to be madeand it is the intent of this book to give the readers ideas to workthrough so they can develop the internal tools needed to carry out theirartwork with a biblical worldview.In this way, It Was Good: Making Art to the Glory of God will offer boththeoretical and practical insights into the making of art from abiblical perspective.

We as believers in the arts can show through thecommon grace of art a fleeting picture of Eden. We should not allow thearts to be the sole dominion of the enemies of God but instead we shouldjoin with Martin Luther in affirming our desire to see all the arts inthe service of Him who has given and created them.The writers/topics for this book are:Ned Bustard / GoodBill Edgar / EvilMako Fujimura / Form and ContentDavid Giardinere / CommunityTim Keller/ ChurchEdward Knippers / Theme and SubjectCharlie Peacock-Ashworth / MakingTed Prescott / IdentityKrystyna Sanderson / LightSteve Scott / TruthGaylen Stewart / Symbolism
