Images or Idols?
The place of sacred art in churches today
This item is a print on demand title and will be dispatched in 1-3 weeks.
The purpose of this study is to engage the interest of artists and churchpeople alike. The Church and the visual arts have become estranged and both suffer because of the ignorance and hostility that fuel the estrangement. Clergy and Parochial Church Councils (and their equivalents in non-Anglican churches) need to consider the rightful place of the sacred visual artist within the Church much more searchingly than is usually the case at the moment. All who care for the visual arts, for God, or for both, should care for the subject of this book. It will not always breed agreement, but it will stimulate thought and deepen perception.
