This is one of the six wonderful pamphlets by Blom on art as handmaiden to religion, on how art testifies, verifies, and lends concreteness in terms credible to a particular time and culture. Here she explains many of her favorite art works responding to the Bible, including some perceptive art history along with her insights on the pieces and the artists. And her insights are wonderful spiritual insights.
She asserts that it is not subject matter that creates religious art; it is a generative way of seeing, a way of relating to life. A work of art can give concrete form to spiritual reality. Blom offers her own discoveries of art that, for her, communicate a living religious response to Bible themes. Interestingly, she believes that the 20th century was producing more experiential religious art than any century of the post-Renaissance West. Her PHPs are #128, 148, 183, 197, 218, and 232. ( )
