This book - the third volume in IVP Academic's Studies in Theology and the Arts series - was edited by David Taylor and Taylor Worley. The book is a collection of essays and reflections presented by artists, theologians, and church leaders at the 2015 CIVA Biennial Conference, this volume seeks to explore misperceptions, create hospitable space to learn from each other, and imagine the possibility of a renewed and mutually fruitful relationship for the common good of both the Church and the contemporary world.
