Who Keeps Us From Stumbling?

  What is Doxology and Why Jude? At Garden City and The Doxology Project(TDP) we believe in living doxologically. Are you thinking, “Doxology? That’s a fancy word and probably too complicated for me.” It’s not! Let me explain. In other posts I’ve shared how the word “doxology” comes from the Greek word δοξολογία, from δόξα (doxa), meaning glory, and λογία (logia), meaning logic or saying.  To capture the...

Art and Reason

Baumgarten, in the middle of the 18th century, working from a mind set based in the thinking of those in the Enlightenment and Renaissance, wrote a book called Aesthetics in which he differentiated between things in the world that come from clear knowledge and those that come from feelings. This work introduced a divide into how we think about art and reason. What subtly formed from Baumgarten’s work forward is what philosophers like...

Marriage | A Work of Art

Marriage is a creative work! Creativity is a marriage! I’ve been pondering this a lot lately in regard to what God has to say about the Art of Marriage in the Scriptures. Our artist, Yahweh, and our Lord God, in the opening scene of Scripture, bursts into darkness to create light; land and sky; and all creatures and creepy things. This includes us, and all of our creepy neighbors who live next door. All of creation originated in the...

One of our aims at The Doxology Project is to provide helpful articles that aid in shaping a holistic and biblical worldview.  We desire to help people see everything in the world as theological (making statements about God). Every slogan, from Burger King’s “have it your way” campaign, to Nike’s iconic “Just Do it” tagline, and every created product from the iPhone to the Droid makes promises of what it will take to apprehend the...

Art in Christian Missions

Jesus Makes… In Matthew 4:19 Jesus called his disciples to follow and promised them that He would “make them fishers of men.” The Greek word for make, poieō, has some interesting implications. This word can refer to authorship, production, construction, formation, fashion, commerce, and even performance. In the same way that John the Baptist “prepared”—poieō the way for the Lord, so was Jesus planning to prepare these seemingly earthy...

Nebuchadnezzar was a powerful King, descending upon the world with great political force—one of great sadness and tragedy, at that.  Not only did he use his power to besiege God’s city of Jerusalem(1)–bringing back its treasures and people to be dedicated to his “gods,”(2) even as God granted him favor and power amidst his arrogance(3)— Nebuchadnezzar still tried to seek prosperity and prowess apart from the Lord’s...

How Jesus Uses Art

Have you ever thought of Jesus as an artist?  Think about the rhythm of the Creation account at the beginning of Genesis.  The God of the entire universe bent down over the dust of the earth (raw material), scooped it up as a potter takes clay, and began to form and shape it.  He then breathed his message of truth, life, and the way into the lungs of Adam, and God’s very own masterpiece came to life.  Not only is humanity a work of...

Dangerous Spirituality

We have inherited a Western idea of spirituality that has trickled down into our worship.  “The spirituality we inherited, for all the richness and holiness it bred, is essentially for the individual. This spirituality puts the full responsibility for the search for God and for holiness on the person, though he or she is expected to need direction, and probably the structure of a life specifically designed to support spiritual search....
