A book about faith and creativity and how they impact our understanding of who God is, and who we are in relation to him.

About this project

This book wrestles with the concepts of faith and creativity. Foundational to the book is the belief that there is something theological about creativity. I believe that if we explore the relational force of creativity and the Creator, we will uncover something both fascinating and life-changing. I call this a creative theology. 

I have been writing about this topic for a while now on my blog, creativetheology.com. Rather than regurgitating those posts, this book aims at unpacking a few ideas about faith and creativity, and inviting you in to the conversation.

I have had the privilege of working with two talented designers on creating a book that is so much more than a book. They have turned a series of words and thoughts into beautiful art. This is a book I want you to experience

With your help, I will be publishing this as a full-color, hardcover book that you will return to not only for the concepts within the pages, but for the inspiring modern design. I didn't want to write a book that gets packed away after it's read. This book is meant for your coffee table, or side table, to prompt, challenge and inspire well after the first read.
