Art and Elegance

Noteworthy and Quoteworthy

“A Christian should use these arts to the glory of God, not just as tracts, mind you, but as things of beauty to the praise of God. An art work can be a doxology in itself.”
― Francis August Schaeffer, Art & the Bible

 

“How should an artist begin to do his work as an artist? I would insist that he begin his work as an artist by setting out to make a work of art.”
― Francis August Schaeffer, Art & the Bible

 

“The ancients were afraid that if they went to the end of the earth they would fall off and be consumed by dragons. But once we understand that Christianity is true to what is there, true to the ultimate environment – the infinite, personal God who is really there – then our minds are freed. We can pursue any question and can be sure that we will not fall off the end of the earth.”
― Francis August Schaeffer, Art & the Bible
