The Courage to Create, Rollo May

12/10/2009

book list

A book about the creative process which I found really helpful. It includes great insights about the artistic personality and the artist’s role within their community. May is a psychologist with a vaguely Christian spirituality – certainly don’t go here for his theology, and be ready for some outrageous misuse of Scripture. Because his idea of community is not primarily bound up in church, it is interesting to take his ideas and think about how they apply in a faith community. I am not sufficiently widely-read to know if this is the best book on the creative process out there.
