About the Blog

(This page is under construction.)

The mission of Art & Theology is to help the church rediscover its rich heritage in the visual, literary, and musical arts and to open it up to the activity of contemporary artists, whose giftings can enable us to see God in new and different ways. Art can enhance our spiritual perception, enrich our prayer lives, stimulate renewed engagement with the Bible, make us more empathetic, challenge our beliefs in a healthy way, and bring us into more intimate contact with the world. Art testifies; it questions; it holds accountable; it stirs and reveals.

Art also slows us down: It invites us to gaze. Deeply. In doing so it fosters the habit of contemplation.

I hope you will join me in this far-reaching study of God that takes artists as our teachers. May God bless your gazing, using it to draw you into a deeper understanding of and devotion to himself.

—Victoria E. Jones
