Francis Schaeffer - WikipediaToday we celebrate the th birthday of Francis Schaeffer, the 20th century American pastor, theologian, and philosopher. With a sharpened analytical mind he understood and uncovered the roots of modern thinking and its logical conclusion across a wide range of disciplines. Schaeffer wrote 22 books in his lifetime — It is a testimony to the worth of his thinking and writing that almost every one of these books is still individually available in print. See also the great deals Crossway has on some of his works. They are either by or about Schaeffer.

My review of Art and the Bible, Francis Schaeffer
It was short and awesome — I love books like that! The book was written a few decades ago, but it serves as an apologetic of sorts for the importance of art and creation for the Church and for Christians. Various faith communities over the years have either drifted to either rejecting the role of art in giving glory to God or they have gone to the other extreme of worshipping art itself. Schaeffer aims to lay out a simple theology of art and creation for giving glory to God and bearing witness to the world. I think in the last couple of decades, the Church has made pretty significant strides as it relates to how it stewards art and values its role in community and mission.
