“The glory of God is man fully alive,” Saint Irenaeus famously said. Gregory Wolfe’s essays hang on that thought, celebrating Christian authors, painters, and musicians whose art embraces life's fullness—its mystery, splendor, and pain. Part spiritual autobiography, part literary meditation, with eloquent, lively writing throughout, Wolfe’s collection is itself a work of beauty crafted in faith. Read it to be reminded of what all such work can do: offer us a “true vision of ourselves” and of the glorious Creator for whose workmanship we were created. (ISI Books).
