I think we would all say creativity is important, but how is that value reflecting in our life? Do we truly believe it? This short book is broken up into two sections, starting with the theology of creativity and ending with the practical side of creativity. Seeing creative work not merely in certain culture boxes, like art, but beyond that to something that every human has the ability to bring to what they do was encouraging. To create is in our nature. “When we study creativity or act creatively, we learn about God.” (26) I loved how the author pointed back again and again to the redemptive work the Lord does and how we can be part of it through creativity. We get to be part of positive change and bringing about good to brokenness, using the imagination God gave us. I appreciated the Biblical foundation that the practical steps were built on. This was an encouraging read. A- for me.
