I was not asked to review this book. But, I feel compelled to. How did I miss this book release over a year ago? Oh, I know. I stopped caring about books about artists and church a while back. There are a plethora of books, blogs, and loud voices making noise about how the church has missed the mark and doesn't know what to do with artists. I'm tired of those sob stories. So, I stopped reading books about artists in the church for a while. They only made me angry and anxious. Sometimes sad. Then I picked up this book. How refreshing. This book has helpful advice for the artist struggling with his or her identity and roll in the kingdom. Not bumper-sticker wisdom, not pithy grabbers, not 7 or 12 or 21 habits or laws. Good, solid, biblical advice drenched in humor and transparent stories full of self-disclosure. I highly recommend this book to any Jesus follower who is an artist (P.S. Notice I didn't say it the other way around. Jesus comes first. Gary does a good job of making Jesus the priority). The book reads like a collection of short stories with regular interruptions by rhyming voices so it had my attention all the way through. You should buy it. I dare you.
