I really enjoyed watching all the episodes of this series. It’s very informative, fun, clear, and engaging. It helped me to get a better grasp of the worship arts and to consider more fully my creative role in worship. I highly recommend this series to worship artists and worship leaders/pastors who are seeking a reliable resource on integrating worship with the arts in a practical and theologically rigorous way!

Be a cultural influencer through the arts for the common good

What a cinematically stunning presentation of each genre of art! This is a cinematic sensation that reveals the cultural significance of the arts aesthetically and theologically. Each episode is a masterpiece. Now I see how each small act of artmaking contributes to the common good. This resource is a must-see for every creative person who cares about culture.
