In the two decades since it began, Image journal has not only emerged as one of North America's leading quarterlies but also carved out a unique identity as the source for contemporary art and literature that grapple with the perennial questions of religious faith. Bearing the Mystery brings together in one volume the best of Image journal's first twenty years - the work of nearly seventy writers and twenty visual artists.
^^The all-star cast of writers whose work - fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction - appears here includes Scott Cairns, Annie Dillard, Clyde Edgerton, Patricia Hampl, Ron Hansen, Denise Levertov, Kathleen Norris, Ann Patchett, Richard Rodriguez, Wim Wenders, and Franz Wright. Editor Gregory Wolfe also provides an introduction that reflects on the journal's mission.


^^Provocative, haunting, and bracing, the work gathered here demonstrates that even in a postmodern era - the ancient practice of making art to record man's encounter with the divine is alive and well.


^^"Over the past dozen years, Image has shaped and reshaped my theology and my aesthetic sensibility. It is one of the most important staples of my reading life, and I am very glad for this volume."
