Who is God? What is his character?
Throughout life’s history, every corner of Earth has been filled with a vast assemblage of creatures—from the beautiful to the bizarre. What purpose do these diverse creatures serve? Could it be that God is a divine Artist, with these creatures reflecting his creative panache?
Thinking about God as a divine Artist moves me to my core. It causes me to fall more deeply in love with him. It draws me closer to him. It fills my heart with a deep desire to worship him.
In this talk, I make the biblical case that God is rightly understood as a divine Artist and then explore how this view of God impacts our understanding of life’s history. I conclude by exploring what this view of God teaches us about ourselves as human beings made in God’s image.
