The value of these lectures lies in their call to a joyful task still unfinished. The kind of Christian culture involvement that Seerveld provokes and inspires remains an ongoing mandate: to entrust even our aesthetic lives to Christ. Seerveld's capricious and creative intellect expresses itself with an exuberant flair. His insights in these Christian Critiques are unapologetically Christian. He approaches are and literature from his experience in philosophy. One advantage if this perspective is that Seerveld avoids the pernicious idolizing of the arts endemic in much modern western culture, while he still asserts the inalienable value of artistic and literary behavior.
