Topics: Arts & Media, Faith & Culture

Cameron J. Anderson delves into the intersection of faith and art in this volume of Studies in Theology and the Arts, drawing from his experiences as both a Christian and a practicing artist. He examines the dynamics between evangelicalism and modern art in postwar America, two realms often in tension. Anderson addresses various challenges artists face, including the significance of our bodies and senses in artistic encounters, the interplay between text and image, the ongoing risk of idolatry, the potential for experiencing God through encounters with beauty, and other thought-provoking topics. With expertise, empathy, and deep insight, he navigates these complex issues.
