At the heart of it, what true artists do—whether in music or painting or film or simply the art of living—is a matter of creative incitement: by looking at the world in particular ways, they see it more clearly, and they invite the rest of us to see it more clearly, and to love it more perfectly. In that respect, the life of faith is a matter of art—of creative enticement. The Christian’s view of the world can inspire hope for the hopeless and redemptive action for people who have forgotten their responsibility to act. Mining his experiences as a missionary, a music industry professional and a visual artist, Douglas Mann offers this call to artists of every stripe—from musicians to missionaries and everywhere in between—to a life of creative incitement to the glory of God.
