Living With Your Eyes Wide Open
Tuesday, October 9, 2012 - 1:25pm
In this week’s episode of The Connected Kingdom, David Murray and I talk to Steve DeWitt. Steve is the author of Eyes Wide Open, one of my favorite books of 2012 (here’s my review). It is a book about beauty, about learning to enjoy God in everything. We talk to Steve about:
- Getting married (just a few weeks ago) at the age of 44 and after 20 years in ministry
- Why God created this world to be beautiful
- How beauty is meant to motivate worship
- Whether beautiful art is objectively good or whether there needs to be an explicit gospel message
- Why beauty can be so closely associated with lust
We discuss more than that, of course, but that’s the gist of it. I think giving it a listen will prove well worth your while.
