As long as there have been human beings, we have made art: we have held up a mirror to the world in compelling, memorable and enlivening ways.

So how can we understand the role of the artist well? What is this urge to make things of beauty? How is the artist responsible, and to whom? What is success for the artist? And what about faith and making art? What does God think of our art-making?

In this letter to an artist, John Dennison reflects on the nature of art-making and its place in God’s purposes. Drawing on his scholarship and own experience as a poet and maker, he shares his best reflections on delight and creation, on making and attentiveness, and on what nourishes the artist’s life. This is a generous, wise, and practical response in a life-giving conversation between friends.
