Bernhardt, Elizabeth - Professor, Drama

undefined The Power of Pretend

ISBN: 1660770343


Publication Date: Sword and Swan, 2020


Elizabeth Bernhardt loves Jesus. She also loves acting. But marrying the two has been a confusing endeavor. Even after trying to "make it" in New York and earning a graduate degree in theatre, the path still seemed unclear. As she continued to struggle with the boundary-blurring, temptations, and emotional struggles of the actor's life, Elizabeth knew there must be a better way.Part memoir, part research project, part Bible study, The Power of Pretend: An Actor's Struggle to Unite Faith & Work is Elizabeth's vulnerable invitation to wrestle alongside her as she seeks to take both her faith and her work seriously. It's a book for Christians and non-Christians, artists and non-artists. Asked with equal parts introspection and humor, investigation and poetry, The Power of Pretend contains a challenge for every reader: Why do you do what you do?
