The Art of Redemption

The Art of Redemption Radio -Where we Investigate the link between worldview and art In this show the hosts Cody Anderson, Daniel Uptain, and Roy Uptain examine the Arts from a biblical perspective. We take on many different philosophical and theological views and line them up with The Scripture. We pull out the error and fallacy of the secular worldview that lies within all forms of The Arts. In doing this we examine how we are to view these arts as followers of Christ and how we need to engage our culture around us. These areas of The Arts include but are not limited to: movies, music, literature, paintings, drawings, digital, and graphic design.

The Art of Redemption Radio -Where we Bring a Christian Worldview to the Arts

 

In this show the hosts Cody Anderson, Daniel Uptain, and Roy Uptain examine the Arts from a biblical perspective. We take on many different philosophical and theological views and line them up with The Scripture. We pull out the error and fallacy of the secular worldview that lies within all forms of The Arts. In doing this we examine how we are to view these arts as followers of Christ and how we need to engage our culture around us. These areas of The Arts include but are not limited to: movies, music, literature, paintings, drawings, digital, and graphic design.

The summer series is called Interviews with the Artists. In the series Cody Anderson interviews a wide range of popular and not so popular artists in their fields. Some of these interviews cover music, writing, design, computer animation, satire, novels, home-made music videos, orchestras, Biblical historical fiction, and more...!

This episode we welcome Chris Bruno, an author with Crossway, a pastor and professor at Bethlehem College and Seminary. He lives in Hawaii and has been in the pastorate there for some years now and is in the process of moving to Minnesota to join Bethlehem as a professor.

In the episode we talk about his background as a writer, his influences in the culture that is in Hawaii, and his book The Whole Message of the Bible in 16 Words (The Whole Story of the Bible in 16 Verses) by Crossway

We talk about the challenges to a writer to take such a large thing like the Bible and condense it into just 16 thoughts or phrases. We talk about how all artists are really challenged in their work to take large concepts and ideas and pull it onto a field that the viewer can relate to and understand. We again bring up this reoccurring idea that as artists we try to make sense of the world around us and more specifically we try to make order from chaos, an idea that seems to be backwards into days mainstream arts. 

Join us as we talk about art and art culture in Hawaii and how we as artist need to know what niche and people group our art is aimed at and then produce art in that vein very well...

Chris' top recommendations and musts:

1. Culture Making by Andy Crouch

2. Silence (the movie) by Martin Scorsese (Makoto Fujimura)

3. The Rabbit Room - Andrew Peterson (President)

 

Outro Music: Somewhere over the Rainbow by Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwo╩╗ole

This episode we welcome Michael Minkoff from the Nehemiah Foundation and Renew the Arts. Michael is a multi-instrumental musician, a writer, a lyricist, and author, but primarily a poet. You could say he is the jack of all trades, artist of many, and master of none.

This episode is packed full of great information and perspective of the arts as a whole and more specifically in the church. There weren't may questions asked because Micheal just walked right through the questions I had and nailed it down pretty good. 

Listen in as he talks about his art, how he got into it and how he came to the point of starting a foundation just for Christian artists who need to be heard. His heart and desire behind the Nehemiah Foundation is awesome. He knows where the culture lays in its view of the arts that come from Christendom and how Christian artists are being treated by the church and not supported. 

We talk about how the church fails, failed, and is failing to notice its talented and called artist and how they won't help them until they are listened to or making money. The church doesn't take are seriously. Art is seen as either a luxury that isn't necessary or as a commodity. But it is far more than that, it is communication. We see this in the Bible as God communicated His Word to us in the form of art through many artists. Art is central to the Gospel and it can be used for good and bad. We, as Christians and Christian artists need to support and get behind the artist in our local congregations and stop supporting a secularized art world in the culture at large around us. If we want good Christian art we are going to have to stand up and pay for it...

And you can do that through Micheal's foundation using the links below!

This episode we welcome Matt Horne, a great personal friend, pastor, husband, father, coffee roaster, architect, drawer, and photographer.

Cody and Matt sit down and chat about Matt's architecture background, how that developed from a love of drawing and how it help him, and his family, on the mission field in Uganda. 

We also talk about how architecture in churches reflect the beliefs that we hold about God. How would a church building do that? Matt expounds, and really only scratches the surface, of the history of architecture in church buildings, going all the way back to pre-renaissance and the gothic era and then bringing it up today. 

What designs we see in those old buildings today compared to the "mega-church" style building today is vary different and thats because the built environment will shape and reflect the culture and beliefs in that culture about God.Listen in as we get a little deeper into the building around us and how design speaks to us...

Matt's Top recommendations:

1. the Netflix series Abstract

2. Letters to a Young Poet by Rainer Maria Rilke

3. Architects: Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Rem Koolhaas

4. Seven Lamps of Architecture by John Ruskin
