Banyen's Description: 

This book is a compilation of Brian Keeble’s insightful essays dealing with the oft-neglected relationship between God and work, spirituality and art, as well as contemplation and action. In the midst of the fast-paced modern world, it addresses the question, “how can work become a form of prayer?” Keeble focuses on artists and craftsmen such as poet and engraver William Blake, calligrapher Edward Johnston, sculptor Eric Gill, and key figures of the Arts and Crafts movement in
Britain
. Throughout, Keeble assesses their contributions and insights in the light of the traditional understanding of the arts and crafts—especially as articulated in the writings of “Traditionalist” authors Ananda Coomaraswamy and Frithjof Schuon—wherein laborare est orare (“work is prayer”).

Brian Keeble is a writer and editor who has long been devoted to the promulgation of the traditional arts. His best-known book is Art: For Whom and For What? Mr. Keeble is the founder of Golgonooza Press and a co-founder of
TemenosAcademy, devoted to the arts of the imagination.
