the wisdom and beauty of art

Quotes from old note cards

Reinhold Marxhausen “Art: Reflections of our Soul”

The purpose of art is to make whole. The purpose of religion and redemption is to make sense. Art and religion have much to offer mankind and are partners in ‘whole-making.’

The art forms elevated the spirits and the feelings of worshipping mankind way beyond the power of the abstract words.


James Young:

“Art requires great risk from people.”

“The quality of the stuff most Christians put out is so embarrassing. Most of it is useless. It’s so explicit… It’s as if they have to find a way to give an invitation to accept Christ at the end of the play.”
