Christian Music

 Christian Art in Your Home

Author: Rosana Hart











Christian art is wonderful for inspiring us. Cathedrals and churches, paintings, music, performances, and sculpture have been created for centuries. Now, in our own time, photography, mixed media, and posters are widely available too.

All these forms of Christian art have shaped our understanding of the great stories of the Bible. From the simple Christmas carols we learned as children to the transcendent glory of Handel's Messiah, Christian music uplifts us. From the Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel to Salvador Dali's Last Supper, Christian paintings give us something to look at and contemplate. A few minutes spent looking at a piece of art can help center us before a time of quiet prayer.

There is something for everyone, with whatever taste in art, with whatever favorite themes. You could spend a lifetime just delving into pictures of Christ himself, as a child and as an adult. Other specific themes include the garden of Eden, angels, the crucifixion, the last supper, saints, and other Christian figures.

The history of Western art is very largely the history of Christian art, so anyone who loves art can benefit from time spent with the masterpieces of Leonardo Da Vinci, Fra Angelica, and so many other great painters and sculptors.

Since there is such an abundance of art, and since we are fortunate to live in an era when high-quality color printing makes books, prints, and posters affordable, we can enjoy as much Christian art as we wish.

One way to live with your favorite Christian art is to have one or more Christian posters in your home. If you happen to have a place of quiet retreat, whether it's a special room or a spot in your living room or bedroom, a Christian poster on the wall might be just the thing.

Rosana Hart writes about many popular poster categories at her website http://www.infoandhelp.com/posters/ and a selection of Christian posters can be seen there.

Do Your Memories Empower or Restrict?
The human memory is a powerful tool engineered by a loving God who is determined to see us become everything hes called us to be. Memories can be one of the most powerful instruments used to stir up our faith. Each of us can remember a time in our life when we felt painted in a corner by our circumstances and only by fighting the good fight of faith we saw what once seemed impossible to our carnal mind become a reality. Maybe it was a sickness or family member running fro

How to Solve a Wonderful Mystery
The first issue we must recognize is the way God uses the word Gentile in His Word. The context will usually show you how the words are meant to be used. In addition the scope of the particular section of a book must be accounted for. Before and after Acts 2828 there are Gentile believers spoken of in the Bible some are called a wild olive branch while others are called The Church which is His Body Why? The Apostle Pauls epistles usually use the word Gentile meaning the Gentile beli
