A Christian artist hopes that God is working in and through her. But does this mean that her own voice and identity must be silenced? In this podcast series, Steve Guthrie (Belmont University) draws on the tenets of the Nicene Creed to develop a rich vision of the relationship between the voice of God and the voice of the artist.
“The Resurrection and the Life of the World to Come”

“Creator of Heaven and Earth”
In this episode, Steve Guthrie talks with fantasy author Helena Sorensen about what it means to escape into literary worlds and the importance of the unseen.
“I Believe in God”

In this episode, Dr. Steve Guthrie talks with Dr. Kirstin Jeffrey Johnson about the Nicene Creed’s phrase “I believe” in dialogue with the life and writings of George MacDonald.

Got a Need fo’ da Creed!
This has become of my listened to podcasts. The theological underpinnings of deep things are made of rough iron hewn out of a mountain and its fell goat. Every episode is one. And sometimes more. Whenever I need to be an artist, I will always come here to do so. Like Rocky, I jab the Creed with artistic punch and it smiles and punches back (but not Ivan Drago).
Thoughtful, Faith-filled, Scholarly
Thank you for this inspiring & instructive conversation. I will certainly return to it!
Subtle and insightful
Steve is such a good conversationalist, and I really admire the way he structured this season of interviews—each episode corresponding to an affirmation from the Nicene Creed. Every conversation ends up in surprising places and sheds new light on the intersection of art and faith. If you’re looking for some new voices to speak into your creative process, whatever your craft is, look no further! You’ll find some inspiration here.
