State of the Arts: From Bezalel to Mapplethorpe
State of the Arts: From Bezalel to
We cannot escape the arts. They permeate our lives and our culture--the décor, architecture, music, entertainment, everyday utensils. The imagination of this age, its ideas and concerns, percolate throughout the culture via the arts. These ideas affect us for good or for evil. The choice is not whether to live with art; we must choose whether to live with good art or bad art. Art--like all things human--needs to be redeemed. Christians cannot abandon the arts to the secular world, but can use them to display God's glory. This book will help us develop an informed artistic taste, open yet critical, discerning yet appreciative of what is truly excellent. "State of the Arts wisely steers Christians between the two extremes of accepting inane cultural trends or dismissing all cultural pursuits as worldly. The book establishes a strong Biblical context for understanding expressions of human creativity and powerfully defends art as a gift from God.

Bezalel: Redeeming a Renegade Creation (A Throne in the Earth: The Ark, The Arts, and the Word Made Flesh Book 1)
Bezalel: Redeeming a Renegade Creation (A Throne in

His uniqueness is not only in the job he was called to do (creating the first portable worship center for God on earth), but also in his experience with God, his unique calling by God, and the characteristics attributed to him. Along with this, he is the forefather of some of the most important people in the Bible. Bezalel has been hidden, and he has been hidden because he was an artist.Why has Bezalel been overlooked? Why are so many artists overlooked? Maybe you have been hidden, overlooked, or passed over. Maybe you have had an amazing call by God to change the world. If that resonates with you, then read on; you may have a lot in common with Bezalel. Bezalel: Redeeming a Renegade Creation is the first follow up book to An Army Arising by Christ John Otto

Mary: When God Shares His Glory (A Throne
Every creative act is an act of giving birth. Mary encountered the glory and had an encounter with her true identity. Through her the Word became flesh. Her life is a model for us as we make the Word flesh through our lives. "This book rearranged my reality.""It made me feel honored to be a woman.""It's perfect theology."These are some of the early comments from readers.Like the breakout success An Army Arising, this book was written for artists but will be read by everyone.

BORIS SCHATZ Lithuanian Jewish Artist & Sculptor Palestine
THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 24, 1932 * Boris Schatz death (1st report) * Lithuanian Jewish artist & sculptor * Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design * "Father of Israeli art" Page 21 has a one column heading: "PROF. BORIS SCHATZ, NOTED ARTIST, DIES" with subheads and photo. (see) First report coverage on the death of Boris Schatz, a Lithuanian Jewosh artist and sculptor who settled in Palestine. I suspect this is one of the few publications to report this particular event as other titles in our inventory do not. Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 44 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Nice condition.
