Is contemporary art a friend or foe of Christianity? Art historian, critic, and curator Daniel Siedell, addresses this question and presents a framework for interpreting art from a Christian worldview in God in the Gallery: A Christian Embrace of Modern Art. As such, it is an excellent companion to Francis Schaeffer's classic Art and the Bible. Divided into three parts--"Theology," "History," and "Practice"--God in the Gallery demonstrates that art is in conversation with and not opposed to the Christian faith. In addition, this book is beautifully enhanced with images from such artists as Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock, Enrique Martinez Celaya, and others. Readers of this book will include professors, students, artists, and anyone interested in Christianity and culture.

Siedell (PhD, University of Iowa) formerly curator of the Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, is assistant professor of modern and contemporary art history at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.

Reviews

"God in the Gallery is a seminal work of interpretation, a guide for skeptics and faithful alike, in which Siedell offers a most profound, encouraging survey of contemporary art. An Emmaus Road encounter for those traveling on the path of contemporary art, Siedell's careful and loving attention paid to known and unknown artists will surely open our eyes. A must read for all of us laboring in the art world and in the arts academia."Makoto Fujimura, artist; founder/creative director, International Arts Movement
