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.
