Charlie Peacock may be best known for his creativity as a singer-songwriter, pianist, record producer, but in addition to his successful music career, he is a published author, speaker and noted expert at the intersection of Christianity and the Arts.
Charlie’s writing includes the discipleship book, New Way to Be Human, and his analysis of Christian music, At The Crossroads, both published by Waterbrook Press/Random House. As a columnist, Charlie has writtten for CCM, Christian Musician, and Worshipper Magazines, with articles in ByFaith, Prism, and Re:generation Quarterly. He has also been cited in First Things, The Chicago Tribune, The New York Times, Mix, Electronic Musician, Keyboard Magazine, Billboard, CCM, Melody Maker, Details, Publishers Weekly, Paste, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today and others.
Sara Groves: “I like a lot of things about Charlie Peacock, but my favorite thing is his joy. It pours out into his music, production, writing and friendships. He is preoccupied with the Kingdom, how it works, and how it is meant to come to us, and because of this, his books, his music and his life are full of fruit and clues about kingdom living.”
Denis D. Haack, Ransom Fellowship, editor of Critique: “Few people have the necessary gifts to communicate wonder in both music and words, and Charlie Peacock is one of those rare artists. In both the poetry of his lyrics and the thoughtful prose of his books, he asks just the right questions so that we see more deeply. Those hungry to be fully human will gravitate to New Way to Be Human, not because Charlie is clever (though he is), but because his heart and imagination is aflame with The Story that brings both grace and hope in our fragmented world.”
Charlie and his wife, author Andi Ashworth, co-founded Art House America in 1990 — a ministry of hospitality, art, and Christian studies, whose primary mission is the advancement of the integration of arts and the Christian faith for the benefit of the Church and the culture at large.
