Endorsements & Reviews-

“Seerveld’s Bearing Fresh Olive Leaves is written out of a passionate concern for the isolation of the Christian artist and out of a desire to stir the vision of the wider Christian community to make space for the artists in their midst. As his own olive branch, Seerveld extends his practical wisdom on how to move forward.”

—E. John Walford, Professor of Art history, Wheaton College, Illinois

“Few have done as much in the last twenty years as Calvin Seerveld to put the arts firmly on the agenda of the Church. He has refused to let is off the intellectual hook, insisting that we press the implications of the Gospel into every corner of the arts world.”

—Jeremy Begbie, Theology Through the Arts Project, University of Cambridge

Bearing Fresh Olive Leaves is Vintage Seerveld. It is a passionate and biblical plea for Christians to take the arts as seriously as they would other gifts of God, not as a mere tool for evangelism but as an authentic expression of human life in a broken yet redeemed world.”

—Adrienne Chaplin, Professor of Philosophical Aesthetics, Institute of Christian Studies, Toronto
