How Artists Can Serve God and Love the World. Musicians, artists and other creative types are pulled in many directions by society's conflicted vision for the arts. Doug Mann, from his vantage point as a Christian visual artist and music industry veteran, offers guidance for staying true to an artistic vision while remaining connected to the world's needs.
At the heart of it, what true artists do--whether in music or painting or film or simply the art of living--is a matter of creative incitement: by looking at the world in particular ways, they see it more clearly, and they invite the rest of us to see it more clearly, and to love it more perfectly. In that respect, the life of faith is a matter of art--of creative enticement. The Christian's view of the world can inspire hope for the hopeless and redemptive action for people who have forgotten their responsibility to act. Mining his experiences as a missionary, a music industry professional and a visual artist, Douglas Mann offers this call to artists of every stripe--from musicians to missionaries and everywhere in between--to a life of creative incitement to the glory of God.
"Douglas Mann has the hands of an artist and the heart of a pastor. This book will show you how there really is no difference. The artist is the new pastor." --Ben Arment, creator of Dream Year and the Story Conference
"The Art of Helping Others is a beautiful confession of sorts--an authentic, heart-moving memoir of joy, pain, sacrifice and hope. Privileged to have known Doug for over fifteen years, I've observed the journey that has inspired the passion he has for challenging how we live out our faith, how our creative natures intersect with following God's call, and finding joy and freedom in the mess of it all. He graciously beckons us all to become creative inciters." --Jenni Catron, executive director of Cross Point Church and author of Clout
