Great art captivates us. Great artists fascinate us.

Some of the greatest artists have taken their inspiration from their faith. Now you can discover the stories behind seventy-five masterpieces of art, literature, music, and film--and the artists who created them. From the Roman catacombs to Rembrandt, from Bach to U2, from John Bunyan to Frederick Buechner, author and historian Terry Glaspey unveils the absorbing true stories behind these masterpieces and shares the faith-filled details you might have missed.


"What a treasure to see how God has used the talents of his people to express their faith and his glory through music, literature, architecture, and more. I loved seeing threads of God's goodness woven throughout each unique story."--Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times bestselling author and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries

"Why should the Creator have stopped speaking through art and music with Giotto or Bach? In this beautifully illustrated and conceived book, Terry Glaspey takes us on a comprehensive tour of art, music, and architecture from the ancient world up to the present."--Michael Card, singer/songwriter and bestselling author

"My friend Terry has penned a gem here, helping us see and appreciate the voice of God's Spirit in the cultural matrix of the now and the past. 75 Masterpieces Every Christian Should Know is simply magical."--Dr. A. J. Swoboda, professor at George Fox Evangelical Seminary and author of A Glorious Dark
