From a world-renowned painter, an exploration of creativity's quintessential - and often overlooked - role in the spiritual life
Conceived over 30 years of painting and creating in his studio, this book is Makoto Fujimura's broad and deep exploration of creativity and the spiritual aspects of "making". What he does in the studio is theological work as much as it is aesthetic work. In between pouring precious, pulverized minerals onto handmade paper to create the prismatic, refractive surfaces of his art, he comes into the quiet space in the studio, in a discipline of awareness, waiting, prayer, and praise.
Ranging from the Bible to T. S. Eliot, and from Mark Rothko to Japanese Kintsugi technique, he shows how unless we are making something, we cannot know the depth of God's being and God's grace permeating our lives. This poignant and beautiful book offers the perspective of, in Christian Wiman's words, "an accidental theologian", one who comes to spiritual questions always through the prism of art.

I Will Never Be The Same
Other than the Bible, this is the most life-changing and consequential book I have ever read! And like the Bible, I will be consulting this book again and again! Grateful! Changed! Full and refreshed and loved!

Helped revitalize my life as a new creation
Every so often a book inspires me, gives me new focus, gives words to what I couldn’t describe, illuminates perspectives I hadn’t thought of, and motivates me to live my life with renewed purpose. This is one of those rare books. It was a much-needed refreshing drink of water to my soul. I look forward to noticing more of the Artist of the universe creating new works of mercy, beauty, and evangelism.
