Worldview and Art: A Call for Balladeers

BY DARROW MILLER, written in 2003 and updated in 2020.

“Where does the impulse for human creativity come from? What are the implications of this impulse for Christians who have a call to the arts, especially as it relates to the issue of culture and discipling a nation? Why is it that some people are born with music in their soul, dance in their legs, a poem on their lips, or hands longing for a canvas and brush or for the touch of clay? Where does human longing for beauty, goodness, and truth come from? Does my worldview provide a basis for art and music?”

In this paper, DNA co-founder Darrow Miller explores the answers different worldviews give, and he explains what the Biblical worldview says in answer to these questions.
