"What Is Christian Art?" - Leigh McLeroy
About This Video
Leigh points out a problem that many of us have faced: How can we as Christians produce art that speaks to more than our own subculture or marketing bracket? Two things happen when we allow ourselves to be "typecast" in this way. First, we automatically exclude a significant amount of people from exposure to our work, and second, we run the risk of setting up our own standards—making "Christian" art synonymous with "good" art.
There is nothing wrong with work intended to speak to a Christian audience (like, for instance, this post), but we have to allow our artists the freedom to create in ways that are true to their gifts. Only by doing so can we speak to a culture that is not our own.
