Review of 75 Masterpieces Every Christian Should Know

75 Masterpieces Every Christian Should Know

In his book, 75 Masterpieces Every Christian Should Know, Terry Glaspey highlights the best in the world of art, beginning with the catacombs in Rome to U2’s The Joshua Tree. Arranged in chronological order, each profile has a brief description of the work, a biography sketch of the artist behind it, and a short explanation as to why it was included in the book.

75 Masterpieces Every Christian Should Know is useful in educating people of faith about the world of art, film, music, and literature. The entries range from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice to Johnny Cash’s Folsom Prison. To his credit, the author does not argue from a specific theological viewpoint, but explains in a skillful and concise manner how the artists’ faith influenced their works. 75 Masterpieces Every Christian Should Know is well-written, informative, and entertaining. I highly recommend it.

 

I was given a free copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
