Former BioLogos staffer Mark Sprinkle recently gave the keynote lecture for the Ravi Zacharias International Ministries summer program at Wheaton College. The program aims “to address the most pressing needs of the church in America today” and drew a crowd of some 249 pastors and church leaders to Wheaton’s campus.
We highly recommend Mark’s talk, in which he addresses questions such as, “What role can the arts play in Christian theology, in the life of the church, in our mission to the world? Can the Incarnation of Christ open up a distinctive way of viewing what art is and what it does? How might our engagement with the arts help us to live out an embodied faith more integrated with every aspect of what it means to be human?”
Mark Sprinkle is an artist and cultural historian, and was formerly Senior Web Editor and Senior Fellow of Arts and Humanities for The BioLogos Foundation. A phi beta kappa graduate of Georgetown University, he received his M.A. and Ph.D. in American Studies from the College of William and Mary, where he studied how artworks embody complex relationships in different cultural contexts. Since 1996 he has been an independent artist and frame-maker, also regularly writing and speaking on the role of creative practices in cultural mediation and renewal, especially in the area of science and Christian faith. Mark and his wife Beth home-schooled their three boys, and are active in the local home-school community in Richmond, Virginia.
