Masters of Light: Coming unto Christ through Inspired Devotional Art

Reviewer Richard Neitzel Holzapfel,

Herman du Toit is the former head of audience education and research at the BYU Museum of Art (MOA). A gifted and talented art educator, curator, critic, and author, du Toit caps his long career of considering, thinking, teaching, and writing about the power of religious art with a beautifully written and illustrated volume, Masters of Light.

As Richard Oman, a well-known LDS art historian, states in the foreword, "Most of us strive for a closer relationship with Christ. Among frequently used external aids are written and spoken words in inspirational talks, sermons, and books. In this book, Herman du Toit helps us better understand and use an additional source: inspired visual art" (x).
