The summer series is called Interviews with the Artists. In the series Cody Anderson interviews a wide range of popular and not so popular artists in their fields. Some of these interviews cover music, writing, design, computer animation, satire, novels, home-made music videos, orchestras, Biblical historical fiction, and more...!
This episode we welcome Chris Bruno, an author with Crossway, a pastor and professor at Bethlehem College and Seminary. He lives in Hawaii and has been in the pastorate there for some years now and is in the process of moving to Minnesota to join Bethlehem as a professor.
In the episode we talk about his background as a writer, his influences in the culture that is in Hawaii, and his book The Whole Message of the Bible in 16 Words (The Whole Story of the Bible in 16 Verses) by Crossway
We talk about the challenges to a writer to take such a large thing like the Bible and condense it into just 16 thoughts or phrases. We talk about how all artists are really challenged in their work to take large concepts and ideas and pull it onto a field that the viewer can relate to and understand. We again bring up this reoccurring idea that as artists we try to make sense of the world around us and more specifically we try to make order from chaos, an idea that seems to be backwards into days mainstream arts.
Join us as we talk about art and art culture in Hawaii and how we as artist need to know what niche and people group our art is aimed at and then produce art in that vein very well...
