They aren’t all pictured, but here are several books I’ve read that have helped to shape and influence my own thoughts about making and living art. I would love to hear from you in the comments, books you recommend as well. I reserve the right to add to this list as more titles come to mind.
Walking on Water: Reflections on Faith and Art :: Madeleine L’Engle
Notes From the Titl-A-Whirl: Wide-Eyed Wonder in God’s Spoken Word :: N.D. Wilson
Scribbling in the Sand: Christ and Creativity :: Michael Card
The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles :: Steven Pressfield
Sacred Rhythms: Arranging Our Lives for Spiritual Transformation :: Ruth Haley Barton
Let Your Life Speak: Listening for the Voice of Vocation :: Parker J. Palmer
Orthodoxy :: G.K. Chesterton
Becoming a True Spiritual Community: A Profound Vision of What the Church Can Be :: Dr. Larry Crabb
To celebrate the end of our 31 day series, I’m going to host a link up tomorrow October 31, inviting you to share words and/or images that represent the art you’re making with your hands or your life right now.
We’ll choose 2 winners from the entries – one of you will win a $100 gift card to Barnes and Noble and another will win 10 copies of A Million Little Ways for your small group, friends, or family to read together.
So take your photos and write your words and have them ready to link up here tomorrow. I can’t wait!
This is day 30 of 31 Days of Living Art. Click here to see all the posts in the series. If you would like to have each new post delivered into your inbox for free, simply enter your email address here and click blog posts.
