For Glory and For Beauty
Practical Perspectives on Christianity and the Visual Arts
By Stephen Gjertson and Kirk Richards

In this unique volume, two Christian artists explore the profound relationship between Christianity and the visual arts. Texas artist Kirk Richards writes to a church that he feels too readily accepts the artistic standard of the world. Minnesota artist Stephen Gjertson endeavors to put the visual arts into proper perspective for fellow believers who are bewildered and appalled by current trends. Together, they cover a broad range of topics from the viewpoint of the professional artist.

Creating in the Image of God
Christian Art in a Modern Culture

“Christian artists must pursue excellence based upon clear and encouraging standards from God’s Word. The Scriptures must be our guide and the masterpieces of all ages must be our examples. We must influence our culture with work that is wholesome, uplifting, and beautiful. This is our good and proper goal, the standard that God set in Genesis. He looked at all that he had done and saw that it was ‘very good’.” Kirk Richards


The Necessity of Excellence
A Philosophic and Practical Foundation for Discerning and Achieving Artistic Excellence

“There are principles in Scripture that serve as a practical foundation for the production and enjoyment of creative work. These principles are based on the revealed character of God and His works. They are not narrow limitations that smother creativity, but rather boundaries within which artists have the liberty to enjoy healthy artistic expression and are able to evaluate their results. These principles point artistic endeavor in the right direction. When applied by people with talent and training they provide the basic elements for creating works that have positive and enduring value.” Stephen Gjertson

“For Glory and For Beauty is a must for all Christians who appreciate the beauty of the arts. The authors have boldly grappled with the major issues that every believer must face in the world of artistry. Their masterful research conveys the biblical and historical basis for the visual arts, and will give the reader a great deal to think about for a long time.” Dr. Patrick Kavanaugh, Executive Director, Christian Performing Artists Fellowship

“For Glory and For Beauty is a much-needed publication that provides solid principles for Christian artists. I wish that it had been available to me during my formative years. Richards’ and Gjertson’s status as accomplished, professional artists gives them an insightful and practical perspective that is often lacking in similar books. These are the best treatises on the subject of Christianity and the visual arts that I have read.” John M. Nolan, Curator, Bob Jones University Museum & Gallery

Richard F. Lack: An American Master
By Stephen Gjertson

Richard F. Lack (1923-2009) was one of the most significant American realists of the second half of the twentieth century. He studied with noted Boston artist R. H. Ives Gammell during the early 1950s. While non-traditional art forms drew attention from the artistic and public press, Lack passionately pursued his artistic aims within the great tradition of Western art. His work exhibits those qualities that were highly prized by masters of the past: authoritative draftsmanship, balanced and harmonious design and skillful craftsmanship. To these qualities he added the Boston artists devotion to painterly handling and truth of color. Through more that four decades Lack created an art of great richness and beauty.
