About-

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Timely and thought-provoking, Like a House on Fire inspires us to abandon our ethnocentric worldviews and embrace the arts as a bridge to other cultures. Steve Scott moves us beyond the importance of contextualization to the incarnational task of cultural restoration."
--Dr. Colin Harbinson, creator of 'Toymaker & Son'

"Steve Scott is a rare individual who combines a deep love and understanding of Scripture with a passion for the arts."
--Steve Turner, author of The Gospel According to the Beatles

"Like a House on Fire gives fresh light and insight into how not to retreat into the margins of postmodern analysis. This book is a wake-up call for the Church and will shake the arts world to its foundational roots."
--Nigel Goodwin, Genesis Arts Trust

"Many Christians are more interested in using the arts as a technique to share the gospel than in the people with whom they seek to share it. Steve Scott will have none of that! He begins with people in their own cultural context and searches for culturally appropriate bridges to heart and mind."
--Kathleen D. Nicholls, International Christian Media Commission

"Like a House on Fire will help the reader to understand that all life, the whole world, the kosmos has been created by God. Steve Scott guides the artist into stepping outside of the religious ghettos of safe art.
--Leen La Riviere, International Association of Christian Artists
