Art and Beauty

“A Christian world view stands opposed to … a reduction of life to the directly utilitarian. God did not create a purely functional world. Instead he planted a garden in which the trees were ‘pleasant to the sight’ as well as ‘good for food.’ …

The capacity for beauty is God-implanted.”

– Leland Ryken
