For those of you who want to read some art history with a christian perspective, read ‘Modern Art and the Death of a Culture’ by H.R Rookmaaker. It’s a pretty well known book and has been around for a while but I only found it a few months ago. I’ve been slow getting through it but it’s a great book for understanding the place Christian art is at currently, and how we’ve got here.
As the blurb on the back says…
‘… Dr. Rookmaaker builds up a message for our times which may be devastating, but is also profoundly helpful and positive. He sees above all the tremendous potential and relevance of Christian attitudes, to man, to society, to freedom, to the whole of reality, as the basis for a way ahead in the future.’
