Faith, Culture, and Art

Forbes has an interesting article on the changing way in which evangelical Christians are interacting with culture, particularly in the visual arts. As the mom of an aspiring professional musician (Oldest Daughter) and a visual artist/philosopher type (13 y.o. son) I am especially interested in this topic on which I have done some but not nearly enough thinking. Rookmaaker's book (Rookmaaker is referenced in the article), Modern Art and the Death of a Culture has been on the top of my "to read books" for too long now, and I was, in fact, hoping to read it with Oldest Daughter before she heads off to college next year.
