Enhance your purchase
"Culture is broken, and New York artist Makoto Fujimura wants to fix it as only an artist can. He's putting forward a framework to reconnect culture with beauty: 'culture care.' But this isn't just about artists or even art. It's ultimately about faith. 'I believe the arts and imagination are in the realm where nature is not strictly a limited-resources environment, that there is generativity embedded in creation.' he said. 'And when human beings exercise the imagination, and we act upon it with love, we create something that is so expansive that typical bottom-line thinking can't explain it.' Throughout Culture Care: Reconnecting with Beauty for our Common Life, Fujimura fleshes out these profound ideas, making it a must-read."--Relevant Magazine, March/April 2017
"Fujimura offers practical, thoughtful and creative suggestions for a neighborhood group . . . to think about, discuss and take steps toward moving culture in a life-giving orientation."--Emily Berman D'Andrea, The Presbyterian Outlook, January 11, 2018
"I can't help but recognize that Fujimura's vision has substance and should be acknowledged and considered by the church as well as others who hope to mend our fractured culture. After all, Fujimura admits early on that this book is only the beginning of a much larger project, which is to pursue art and beauty as a remedy for our sick and quickly dying culture. That is why I believe this book is important for artists and non-artists alike. Whether you're a painter or a collector, a writer or a reader, we are all responsible for the casualties in the culture wars and thus must participate in the mending of the resulting divides."--Douglas Graves, Englewood Review of Books, Lent 2017
"It is a very readable book, full of thought-provoking and helpful ideas, and 'must-reading' for anyone interested in the arts and culture, either as a practitioner or a consumer."--David McKay, The Covenanter Witness, July/August 2017
