Ms. L'Engle, more famous for her children's books, such as _A Wrinkle in Time_, focuses on the often vexing issues of sacred and secular art in _Walking on Water_. "There is nothing so secular, that it cannot be sacred, and that is one of the deepest messages of the Incarnation," she writes. She explores these fine boundaries, the nature of divine revelation, and how one interacts with art, both in sacred and secular manners.

Along with her book, George Steiner's _Real Prescences_, Dorothy L. Sayer's _Mind of the Maker_ and Flannery O'Connor's _Mystery and Manners_ are all excellent books that concern themselves with questions of faith, art, and creation within a Christian schemata.
