Smith continues to highlight the famous creatives who stepped out of their comfort zones and expressed their art in theater, dance, music, film, and global ministry with a Christian influence. Before the 20th century, Christian movies, plays, dance, and music genres were unheard of, but now the arts are rapidly advancing within the church. People like Billy Graham(1949), Hillsong Church(1983), TobyMac(2001), Mercy Me(1990), and Phil Fischer and Mike Nawrocki, the creators of Veggie Tales(1993), are just a few people Smith mentions who marked the beginning of Christian media. The entire genre of Christian rap and films, first developed in the 1990s, has grown so much in popularity and continues to advance in the pop culture. Smith writes, “Suspicion is still present among western believers, but the involvement in the arts of a younger generation is eroding the suspicion allowing the arts to be a resource of hope for faith our communities. The arts are being accepted as a context in which one can meet God and experience the divine presence as well as to disclose to us something of God’s truth” (Smith, pg 160).
