On Christian Art

On Christian Art

Lee Camp, professor of theology and ethics at Lipscomb University, is the creator and host of Tokens, a sort of radio show (Prairie Home Companion-style) existing at the crossroads of comedy, music, story, and theology. I came across this article on the nature of “Christian art” on his blog a while back. It’s worth your time. Here’s an excerpt:

The world does not need more “Christian art” or “Christian movies” or “Christian music” or “Christian television.” That would be like saying the world needs more cheese spread. The world needs instead more people caught up in the liberating vision of life bequeathed to us in our living and active faith, who go out and design and build and compose and play, with their faces toward the Son, letting all and every aspect of life speak and sing and play in the melodies of God’s good Kingdom.

If you ever get a chance to attend one of the Tokens shows, you’ll be glad you did. Read the entire post here.
