Is contemporary art a friend or foe of Christianity? Daniel Siedell, art professor and former art gallery curator, addresses this question and presents a framework for interpreting art from a Christian worldview in God in the Gallery: A Christian Embrace of Modern Art. As such, it is an excellent companion to Francis Schaeffer's classic Art and the Bible. Divided into three parts--"Theology," "History," and "Practice"--God in the Gallery demonstrates that art is in conversation with and not opposed to the Christian faith. In addition, this book is beautifully enhanced with images from such artists as Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock, Enrique Martnez Celeya, and others. Readers of this book will include professors, students, artists, and anyone interested in Christianity and culture.
