White Horse Inn: Conversational Theology

Art in the Christian Life with Guest Ann Tarwater

Michael Horton is joined by Ann Tarwater to discuss the place of art in the Christian life, if art is just for the elites, and how churches can emphasize truth, but neglect goodness and beauty.


  • Michael Horton is White Horse Inn’s founder and co-host. In addition to serving as a J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics at Westminster Seminary California, he is a minister in the United Reformed Churches. He is the author of more than 30 books.
  • Ann Tarwater started her career as a model for famous American fashion designers Oscar de la Renta, Mary McFadden, Alpert Nipon, and many others. She also graduated with a Masters of Divinity from Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina. Building upon her background in modeling and fashion as well as theology, Ann launched The Appropriate Method, a business teaching etiquette and protocol to children and adults. Ann currently serves on the Advisory Board for the Arts at Queens University, the Board of Craft and Design for the Mint Museum, and the Chaplains Advisory Board for Atrium Health.
