Riassunto: As our culture becomes increasingly utilitarian and bottom-line driven, the significance of artistic expression quietly gets pushed to the margins. Unfortunately, this trend is often seen within the Church itself as faith and art are progressively torn apart and treated as separate worlds.
Art and Faith addresses the tension between artistic expression and genuine faith. Through story and questions, author Jon Bowles explores how and why art is paramount to spiritual formation, the church experience, and our continual endeavor to become more fully human. This resource unpacks a theology of faith and art that has emerged from Bowles s community at Beggars Table, a church that makes its home in a gallery in Kansas s City s art district.
Regardless of whether your church meets in an art gallery, a traditional sanctuary, or a school gymnasium, this book will move you beyond superficial programs that incorporate art to discussions on the implications of a church that truly engages the arts.
Art and Faith leads readers into the margins to discover the artistic essence of life in the kingdom of God, who from the beginning, has been something of an artist himself.

Sinossi: Should being a Christian encompass all of life? Or only part of life? 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. Increasingly, artistic and religious expressions are viewed as different--and somewhat conflicting--realities. But author Jon Bowles throws light on the worlds of faith and art, revealing the ways the two are not dichotic but instead necessarily related. Informed by the narrative of Beggars Table, a community that meets in a gallery in Kansas City?s Arts District, Bowles moves us past superficial suggestions for arts programming and into a conversation about the meaning and formation of awe. This is a story about how art has shaped the imagination of one church toward the kingdom. This could be a story about your church too.This small group edition includes: Video sessions with the author and various artists1 copy of Art and FaithIn-depth discussion questions to help you explore each topic
