Word Pictures
Knowing God Through Story and Imagination
by Brian Godawa | Genre: Non Fiction-Misc
Release Date: August 2009
 

Brian explains the book’s genesis, “In recent years I went through a change of mind in how I understand theology and my faith. I have always been an artist, but in my theology and faith I overemphasized rationality and underplayed imagination. I learned that this was more a product of my culture than of the Bible, which utilizes a vast amount of imagination to communicate God’s truth. I think Word Pictures is needed because it provides a biblical basis for renewing a lost emphasis on imagination in our theology.”

Weaving historical insight, pop culture and personal narrative throughout, Godawa reveals the importance God places on imagination and creativity in the Scriptures, and provides a biblical foundation for Christians to pursue image, beauty, wonder and mystery in their faith.

The Bible is not a systematic theology of abstract propositions or a treatise on doctrinal correctness. It is a collection of narratives, poetry, images and metaphors that convey God equally through rationality and imagination. If we want to know God more biblically, as well as be more persuasive to a postmodern world, we must embrace the power and mystery of imagination in our approach to and understanding of God.
