The arts belong to the Christian life. And in ‘The Liberated Imagination,’ author Leland Ryken explores the God-ordained significance of art—its nature and purpose in relating to truth and everyday life. For both artist and audience, for student, teacher, and critic, this book is a road to discovering how : $ Just as Christ's incarnation provides the earthly basis for artistic pursuit, says Leland Ryken in the introduction to The Liberated Imagination, so too Christ's ascension is the basis for the transcendent element in art.

Christians are people who live simultaneously in two worlds—the physical and the spiritual—and as such our response to art, as well as our own artistic endeavours. The Christian Imagination brings together in a single source the best that has been written about the relationship between literature and the Christian faith.

This anthology covers all of the major topics that fall within this subject and includes essays and excerpts from fifty authors, including C.S.

Lewis, Flannery O'Connor, Dorothy Sayers, and Frederick Buechner. "'The Liberated Imagination' is a civilized, not to say baptized, treatment of what happens when a Christian confronts culture.

What Leland Ryken has done is simply to validate the artistic experience and to tell Christians the deep artistic truth that they already unconsciously know.".
