Garnishing awards from "Choice, Christianity Today, Books & Culture," and the Conference on Christianity and Literature when first published in 1998, Roger Lundin's "Emily Dickinson and the Art of Belief" has been widely recognized as one of the finest biographies of the great American poet Emily Dickinson.

A work of haunting beauty. .^- Grant Wacker in "Books & Culture"^ Well written, free of the swollen jargon that obscures so much academic writing, Lundin's study ofDickinson provides a thoughtful analysis of America's greatest poet and the God who always eluded her grasp. .^- Martha Ackmann in "The Journal of American History"^ Rarely do reviewers read books they wish they had writte
