Imagination is the ability to look beyond what is immediately present to what might be; it is not to take us away from reality, but to expose us to new ways of seeing things. This is why Jesus used parables, David use lyrics, Solomon used poetry, Ezekiel used mime, and Luke used story. Given the preponderance of the arts and media affecting almost every arena of society today, it is safe to say that we are living in a day when the proclamation of Biblical Truth can be heralded, initiated, expressed and embodied as never before through the arts.
The most effective culture-changer of the last century has not been the church, but rather the media and arts, which are clearly engaging and capturing people’s hearts and imaginations today. Therefore, the dynamic interplay between the arts, truth and the imagination becomes a stage for God to make an entrance and present inspired ideas to the hearts and minds of men and women through the gateway of imagination. This captivating nature of the arts is helping people worldwide connect to God like never before, for as many have said, “This is the age of the Artist”.
