McElroy has done the requisite homework, has reflected on the need for a Christian perspective in aesthetics, and desires to hone his craft with excellence and nuance. And, yes, he helps us remember to call forth the giftings of the Spirit, to rely on God, to find, as he puts it, “divine inspiration.” We recommend his book to you.”

“Scott’s down-to-earth, practical nature comes through in this witty and insightful book.  I love his emphasis on listening to and collaborating with the Holy Spirit.  With God’s direction and inspiration the arts can be one of the most powerful tools the church has for opening hearts to the Spirit’s voice.   Scott has done an excellent job of leading us into a deeper walk with the Lord that leads to a true collaboration with Him in the arts and the greater drama of life itself.”
