The Kingdom Art Life

Conversations about art and faith can often (understandably) be quite metaphorical and abstract, and sometimes this frustrates me. So, I really appreciate Marlita Hill’s podcast, The Kingdom Art Life, which gives a solid biblical and theological grounding to the discussion, and is highly practical.

Marlita is a great communicator—quiet, clear, insightful, and funny—and, as a professional dancer and mature Christian, she’s lived this stuff out; it’s not theory. Her perspective and message (which is about harmonising faith, art, and a “secular” art career) are quite unique, I think.

Highly recommended.

The freedom of the Christian artist

Religious subjects are no guarantee that a work of art is Christian. On the other hand, the art of an artist who never paints the head of Christ, never once paints an open tomb, may be magnificent Christian art….


Some Christian artists will never use religious themes. This is a freedom the artist has in Christ under the leadership of the Holy Spirit

—Francis Schaeffer, Art and the Bible
