'The Divine Artist' - 'Art for God's Sake' "God the Divine Artist became the art - He, Jesus, hung on the wooden frame of the cross.

27 Quakers from 13 Yearly Meetings in four countries tell how they combine committed membership of the Religious Society of Friends with rejection of traditional belief in a transcendent, personal and supernatural God. For some of these 'nontheist' Friends, God is no more (but no less) than a symbol of the wholly human values of 'mercy, pity, peace and love'.

One of the great problems in the Christian community today is a general inability to communicate effectively without polarizing or driving people away. Sometimes the greatest problem is the seeming inability of many Christians to learn the truth of another old maxim: silence is golden. For God's Sake, Shut Up!, by Communications Specialist Brian Kaylor, offers numerous insights for Christian leaders
