Book Description

God made us to enjoy beauty wherever we find it, whether it’s music or the visual arts. But sin finds ways to obscure what is right in front of our eyes and ears.

This is a guidebook to a web resource of Artist and Musician biographies (http://aaep1600.osu.edu). We discuss art and music in the context of popular culture, so chances are you will see relationships between art and music and what you are learning and the way you live, to connect them to your own experience.

The virtues of this book are immediately evident. It asks the right questions, provides the right answers, and illustrates the claims made about art and music with analysis of examples.
