Issue 62

A conversation with Eugene Peterson; artist Bruce Herman and patron Walter Hansen converse about their three-year project producing a cycle of images of the life of the Virgin Mary; and Gregory Wolfe wonders about the directionality of history: is everything going to hell, or is the human race making progress? With poems by Eric Pankey, Nicholas Samaras, Daniel Abdal-Hayy Moore, and Mark Rudman; a look at Asian cinema by critic Jeffrey Overstreet; and more.
