Praise for All Things New
"These delightfully crafted essays will spark in you a fresh desire to glorify God by visiting an art gallery, watching a classic movie, reading a work of literature at a leisurely pace, or listening to some of the great music of the past. They may, in fact, stir you to write a hymn yourself, or pick up a paint brush, a pen or a camera…”
"This is a readable book designed for people who want to understand how Christianity relates to culture and the arts.”
LELAND RYKEN, Professor Emeritus of English at Wheaton College and author and editor of several books including Realms of Gold and The Christian Imagination.
Table of Contents
"This book functions as both a guide and a model for how we should be engaging culture as Christians. Whether you are fresh to the subject or a seasoned explorer there is a lot to be gleaned for every reader. All Things New is written as a series of very short chapters allowing you plenty of space for pause and reflection. Together they cover a huge range of subjects related to what has traditionally been called ‘high culture’, i.e., the arts. We are introduced to the world of paintings, literature, music and film. Jeremy’s own passion and love for this shines through, as does his love for Jesus. He writes with the expressed intention that we bring this domain of life under Christ’s Lordship. Here is a piece of writing that wonderfully combines the Bible and theology with many illustrations from the world of the arts—both old and new.”
