What if creativity was not a talent given to a chosen few, but an invitation extended to us all? What if the desire for beauty was not gratuitous, but central to our faith? Drawing upon the biblical account of Creation and the witness of a myriad of creative thinkers, this book asserts that all of us – from plumbers to painters and meteorologists to musicians – were made in the image of an imaginative God. Naming the Animals encourages us to see creativity as an essential part of God’s design for partnership with humanity.
