Nothing New Here Sep 19, 2006
I have read several books on creativity and spirituality. I had hoped to use this book for a group study at my church, but ended up being very disappointed. There is little here that seemed new and fresh.
One note: It seems completely geared toward women. All the stories and examples are very feminine in perspective, and that is fine, but it should say so in the description. I think a typical male would have a hard time relating to it. My guess is that traditional women from conservative, evangelical churches would find this book most helpful.
New Thoughts... Feb 25, 2006
I love this book. I have been basically challenged to see a different side to scripture. God is a creative God, and therefore calls us to be creative. If we stop living for ourselves, we can see that God has blessed us with creativity, no matter who you are. This book helps you discover your creativity in your everyday life, and use it for God's glory.
a book for ALL artists Aug 20, 2001
this is an amazing book, full of wonderful ideas and very creative tools. this book is a must for all artists, from actors and writers to mothers and fathers (who are, after all, the greatest of artists').
