#1:

The Mind of the Maker: The Expression of Faith through Creativity and Art

Dorothy Sayers

*** $2.99 ***

 
An investigation into the nature of God and creativity from the author of the Lord Peter Wimsey Mysteries, with an introduction by Madeleine L’Engle.

From the first pages of Genesis, it is clear that God and man share one vital trait: the ability to create great works out of nothing. More than any other group, artists feel impelled to create, and this urge brings them closer to God. By contemplating the creative drive of humanity, we can better understand the works of God, and by reading deeply into the tenets of Christianity, we can better understand the creative spirit of man. In this searching, wide-ranging treatise, one of the greatest minds of the twentieth century shows us what it means to be an artist—and what it takes to make humankind.
 

#3:

Jean Twenge

*** $ 2.99 ***

The Ascent to Truth

Thomas Merton

*** $2.99 ***

 

In Ascent to Truth, author and Trappist Monk Thomas Merton makes an impassioned case for the importance of contemplation.
