Visual Theology: Chris Powers & Full of Eyes

Chris Powers is doing magnificent work. I've written about him before, here

Chris explains that his website, Full of Eyes, exists,
to see, savor, and sing the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ, using pixel, ink, and word. I hope to do this through Christ-exalting, Biblically-submitted, heart-haunting videos about the glory of Jesus Christ, the Son and Image of God.
With the continued help of various song artists, and the support of the Body of Christ, my plan is to make these videos and resources available for free to the global Church.

Chris does a fantastic job of bringing visual theology to life. In addition to wonderful videos, tract cards, and other artistic representations, Chris has been hard at work developing curricula to supplement each of his videos.

For his startling video "It's Not Enough", about sin and idolatry, Chris developed a study guide for small groups. It is available in Spanish as well. The study guide is free, as all his work is free to use for the glory of Christ. More study guides will be coming along as h transitions to working on his animations full time.

Here is his caption for the piece below.
Christ alone gives us unshakable peace because HE HIMSELF is our peace (Eph. 2:14). In this picture you can see all the world's promises of peace shattering like teetering towers of stone in the face of a tidal wave...and even though the Christian is certainly buffeted by troubles (John 16:33), in the face-to-face fellowship we have with Christ, there is untouchable peace... we all grow in the knowledge of Christ, our Peace!" 
Below is his sketch



Please visit Chris's website, order his tract cards (I did and they're wonderful), listen to the music & animated videos, and if you feel led, support him monetarily through Patreon or Gaius.

We definitely want to support and encourage the next generation coming up, and Chris is one of the good guys, doing Kingdom work in faith and humility.
