Book Reviews: Imagine That

 "The book blends the vertical and horizontal perfectly and we never lose sight of Who is at the center of Luz's theological/artistic foray and verbal painting: God. ... The balance of cultivating excellence, substance, spiritual discipline against a backdrop of liberty, humility, service and grae paints a meaningful and rich canvas of creativity and unfettered imagination. ... Encouraging, challenging, inspiring, Imagine That is a gift to the artist in all of us."    Worship Leader Magazine, Nov/Dec 09

"Every chapter held enlightenment for me. From acknowledging that we were created in the image of a very creative God, and should express the creativity within us. To explaining that Christian artists don’t have to create overtly Christian pieces, but should let our work flow from our honest soul-stirring perspective on life. ... To validating that inner urge—that inner “call”—to create and communicate a worthy message for the sake of my soul and the sake of others."    Mandy Thompson, The Worship Community

"Imagine That should be required reading for all Christian artists and those of us who would critique it."      The Christian Manifesto

"Luz’ unique personal history (he’s been both a Jazz musician and a rocket scientist and now is a Pastor) makes me want to sit across the Starbucks table from him and just ask him to talk about his life."    Sarah Markley, The Worship Community

"Manuel Luz deftly weaves his considerable experience as an artist with insight from his faith journey to offer this provocative book. ... Worship artists will find much in this volume to ponder for their own spiritual formation and worship teams will find it a user-friendly discussion-starter with its list of probing questions at the end of each chapter. ...  Highly recommended."    Marcia McFee, Creator Leadership Network

"Manuel masterfully explores all the many reasons the Christian artist is so needed and so valued by God."   Lori Biddle, The Worship Community
