Where Imagination and Innovation Meet

“Reason is the natural organ of truth; but imagination is the organ of meaning. Imagination, producing new metaphors or revivifying old, is not the cause of truth, but its condition.” – C.S. Lewis

If imagination is the organ of meaning, and if God orients our imagination, then the gospel offers a creative advantage when it comes to bringing meaning to our work. But what state must our imaginations be in to spark innovation? And what’s the best fuel to keep our imagination running? Tim Keller walks us through how the hope of the gospel is not only the source of our imagination, but the fuel and anchor we need to drive our imagination into innovative terrain.
