Typography and Theology

I just read a great piece over at the Gospel Coalition titled ‘Creative Orthodoxy‘ that attempts to answer the question, how can we be creative with theology yet hold to orthodoxy? Ben, the author, uses typography to talk about how we can be creative with theology. The best typographies are those that disappear and allow the reader to instead focus on the words. The idea is:

Both great typographers and also great theologians strive to make their work an “invisible art.” They facilitate a process by which ideas are conveyed (in the case of typography) from one person to another or (in the case of theology) from God to his creations, without causing a distraction or drawing attention to themselves.

Does your life and theology make you invisible and instead point to Christ? What does this mean in your life to make yourself more invisible?

He must increase, but I must decrease.

John 3:30
