The Art for Faith’s Sake series is designed to promote the creation of resources for the church at worship. It presents two types of material: primary and secondary liturgical art. Like primary liturgical theology, classically understood as the actual prayer and practice of people at worship, primary liturgical art is that which is produced to give voice to God’s people in public prayer or private devotion, and art that is created as the expression of prayerful people. Secondary art, like secondary theology, is written reflection on material that is created for the sake of prayer, praise, and meditation of God’s people.
The series presents both worship art and theological and pedagogical reflection on the arts of worship. The series title, Art for Faith’s Sake, indicates that, while some art may be created for its own sake, a higher purpose exists for arts that are created for use in prayer and praise.
