Lyrical theology, the attributes of God, and John Newton
[...] Excellent art by Christians commends the gospel in a compelling way. It is attractive because it doesn’t stop at the creature, but points beyond itself to the ultimate Artist. It says, “This is what it looks like to not only be made in the image of God, but to be ‘created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness’” (Eph. 4:23) In our world, which is characterized by rebellion against God, there are many obstacles to belief in Jesus. But very few provoke the kind visceral, immediate response of displeasure that bad Christian art does.
