According to His Excellent Greatness

I’m very excited to tell you about my friend’s book about the arts and creativity. But first, here’s what another writer, EJ Olsen, said about According to His Excellent Greatness:

When I saw the tagline, “The Practice of Aesthetics for Christians Today,” I have to admit that I did not think that this book would be relevant for me. I thought that aesthetics was limited to visual arts. Being a writer, I was not sure how interesting a book about painting and drawing would be. But I decided to give it a listen. According to His Excellent Greatness proved to be incredibly relevant to my life as an artist and a consumer – or, as the book would say, a “commissioner” — of many arts.

Michael Minkoff, my friend and fellow creative professional, has spent thousands of hours studying the defining principles of the arts. I have read most of his book, and I already plan to read it again. If you are an artist of any kind, or you take special interest in the topic of creativity, this is a book you should read or listen to.

I don’t want to reduce the content to a paragraph description here. There is a wealth of thoughtful — and I mean, very thoughtful — insight in the book. So if you want to know what it’s all about, read Michael’s own description of the book.

The e-book (a PDF) and the audiobook, for your benefit. It’s insanity that he is offering this book for free, so get it before Michael comes to his senses.
