Overview

Art is of enormous consequence. It can transform our world. Art has the potential to awaken our imagination and show us worlds that we had not previously dreamed. Art can give us hope when the world seems hopeless. Art provides us with stories through which we make sense of the world. Yet, despite these artistic gifts, artists often go unnoticed by our society. For the Christian artist, their calling is ultimately not to success but to faithfulness to God.

This lecture was given as part of the Gospel & Culture Lecture series featuring Dr. Adrienne Chaplin. Dr. Chaplin gained her doctorate in philosophy from the Free University in Amsterdam where she also studied art history and violin. From 1999 until 2007 she taught philosophical aesthetics at the Institute for Christian Studies (ICS) in Toronto, Canada, part of which time she served as president of the Canadian Society for Aesthetics.

In his book Counterfeit Gods, Tim Keller shows us how a proper understanding of the Bible reveals the truth about societal ideals and our own hearts — and that there is only one God who can wholly satisfy our cravings and fulfill our hopes.
