Summary Addicted to Mediocrity Contemporary Christians and the Arts

Read & download ↠ Addicted to Mediocrity Contemporary Christians and the Arts 107 Read ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ç Franky Schaeffer In this provocative book Franky Schaeffer shows how Christians today have sacrificed the artistic prominence they enjoyed for centuries and settled instead for mediocrity The evidence for this sad state of affairs abounds We are flooded with Christian doodads trinkets t shirts bumper stickers etc that use God's name as an advertising slogan Things Go Better with Jesus putting the Creator of the universe on the same level as soda pop Moreover Schaeffer wr Today Christian endeavor in the arts is typified by the contents of your local Christian bookstore accessories paraphernalia shop For the coffee table we have a set of praying hands made out of some sort of pressed muck Christian posters are ready to adorn your walls with suitable Christian graffiti to sanctify them and make them a justifiable expense Perhaps a little plastic cube with a mustard seed entombed within to boost your understanding of faith And as if this were not enough a toothbrush with a Bible verse stamped on its plastic handle And a comb with a Christian slogan or two impressed on it On a flimsy rack are stacked a pile of records You may choose them at random blindfolded for most of them will be the same idle rehash of acceptable spiritual slogans endlessly recycled as pablum for the tone deaf television softened brains of our present day Christianspg 22 23Hilarious I found this book to be very encouraging in the freedom it gives Christians to pursue their artistic endeavors in their own special way without being held back by suffocating Christian ideologies It begins with an argument for many of the problems with the way the Evangelical American church has handled the arena of the arts and aesthetics and then gives an alternative solution for how one could view the arts All while taking refuge and inspiration from the history of Christian artists going back to the fall of the Roman Empire heightening in the High Renaissance and finally through the 19th Century
