Question description

The Final Analysis

Choose any of the art forms studied during the term, including dance. Locate a specific work or performance that was created by an artist who confessed Christianity and worked out of a distinctively Christian worldview. The work should be considered a masterpiece of its kind.

Do some research on the artist and the work and try to gain a deep understanding of how the artist integrated his or her faith with the materials of that art form. Study the work yourself independent of the judgment of others to further this understanding.
Consider the following questions:

1) How does the content of the work reflect a Christian worldview?
2) How does the style of the work contribute to its message?
3) How does the artist handle the unique challenges of the artistic form?
4) What in the craftsmanship or execution of the work reflects an understanding of art as a gift from God?
5) Are there any aspects of the work that you question given your own understanding of the faith?

Now for this assignment, compose a 1000-1500 word critical analysis of a specific artistic masterwork by an artist who confesses or confessed Christianity. Address the five questions listed above in an essay designed to show how faith can be expressed through the tools of a specific artistic medium. Use specific detailed analysis of parts of the work to develop your points.

Include with your essay images from the work, sound clips from it, or links to it. These will be in addition to the 4-6 page analysis. Also, you should include citations when using materials from scholarly sources, but this paper is to be an analysis, not a research essay.

If you have questions, contact your instructor, but do so well in advance of the project’s due date.

Analysis of Art
“Hugo Hudson” in the movie “Chariots of Fire” depicts different aspects of the Christian
worldview. Firstly, the main characters are portrayed as having a primary focus of Christianity.
Eric Liddell and Harold Abrahams are both runners who compete in different sports occasions
for a different reason but with a Christian view. Eric is a devout Scottish Christian who chooses
to run for the glory of God while Abrahams is an English Jew who resolves to run to overcome
prejudice in the society and school. Both intentions of this character are included in the
Christianity doctrine. It is expected that Christians should use their talents for the glory of God
and that prejudice is wrong and should be fought by all Christians. Further, in the movie, the idea
of keeping Sabbath holy is presented when Eric refuses to compete in the Olympics claiming that
it is wrong to do and he would be going against the commandment of God. The following is an
image of the movie’s poster.



Another Christian view presented in this movie is that God made humankind for a
particular purpose and that Christians should find it and use it for the glory and honor of God.
Eric seems to have found his running. The audience learns of this when Eric responds to his
sister’s accusation that he no longer cares about God. He tells her that God made him run for his
glory and when he does so God’s pleasure. Further, Christians hold that serving Go’s purpose
