Understanding the Christian Artist

I recommend this book by Orthodox filmmaker and author, Franky Schaeffer. It is out of print but can be found used. It is a must read for those who have questions about the mission of the Church in the entertainment and arts industries and the Christian missionaries who must endure both the rejection of non-Christians and the resistance of uninformed Christians.

    Franky now refers to himself as "an atheist who believes in God", as of the last article I read of him. http://www.salon.com/2014/12/24/my_horrible_right_wing_past_confessions_of_a_one_time_religious_right_icon/

  2. Dcn J- A little off topic, but that's okay. I am aware of Franky's crisis of faith. This does not negate the validity of what he wrote about the arts. Reminds me of a man named Peter, who also did and said some foundational things before completely denying the Christ. He repented and was forgiven. We can pray that Franky will repent also.
