Editorial Reviews

Review

Art and Faith features more biblical exegesis than studio tips, as the painter wrestles eloquently with art-averse fellow-Christians who prefer narrow-minded “culture war” to the “culture care” he advocates.”—The Economist

“[An] elegant treatise . . . Fujimura’s sensitive, evocative theology will appeal to believers interested in the role religion can play in the creation of art.”—Publishers Weekly

“A beautiful book . . .  Art and Faith should be widely read. Its delightful wisdom and clarity underlines our culture’s desperate need to make things new.”
—Susanne Sklar, Arts Fuse

“A brilliant, dense, and far-reaching study of the relationship between art, artist, and the living Creator . . . Fujimura brings his passion, talent, knowledge, and love of God and man strongly to bear.”—Richard Christman, Forefront

“One of the most beautiful aspects of Art and Faith, and I would argue one of the most appealing aspects of Christianity itself, is the insistence that though the world is broken, its brokenness is the basis of its rebirth . . . Fujimura often uses moving personal anecdotes . . .  that lure us in with their warmth, humor, and tenderness. And anyone interested in the creative act or worried about our culture’s elevation of consuming over making will find plenty to mull over.”—Scott Beauchamp, Washington Examiner

“Engaging . . . Fujimura gathers the many themes from each corner of his vibrant career into a single volume that persuasively articulates a ‘theology of making’ while communicating that vision in a contemplative style that itself radiates the very creativity he advocates.”—Joel Clarkson, Christianity Today

“Fujimura’s manifesto . . . An invitation to us all to remember, reflect, and reclaim humanity’s first (and often forgotten) vocation of being co-creators with the ultimate Creator.”—Zachary Lee, Fare Forward

“[In] this delightful book . . . Fujimura teaches us what he has learned on his path to God, and in so doing reveals the depth dimension to any artistic making. . . . Fujimura writes powerfully of the need for Christians to reengage with this finesse for making and set aside the culture wars of apologetics. . . . We need to help reopen the pathways to God.”
—Terence Sweeney, Dappled Things
 

“This brief, very crisply and lucidly written book makes a brilliantly and distinctly personal contribution to the ongoing discussions around faith and the creative imagination.”—Rowan Williams

"Makoto Fujimura’s art and writings have been a true inspiration to me. In this luminous book, he addresses the question of art and faith and their reconciliation with a quiet and moving eloquence.”—Martin Scorsese

“Here a world-class painter and cultural critic reinterprets both the creative act and the nature of Christian faith in a way that should interest anyone concerned with the indispensable role of the creative imagination in human flourishing.”—Ellen Davis, Duke Divinity School

"Makoto Fujimura is the rare artist whose life has something of the same purifying and galvanizing force of his work. His new book brings those two elements—life and art—even closer together, and is a real tonic for our atomized time."—Christian Wiman

“In the presence of the beautiful ‘we act like someone who is all ears and eyes: beauty has something to say to us,’ wrote Nietzsche. Reading this book, I fell silent and became all ears and eyes.”—Miroslav Volf, Yale Divinity School
