Issue 96

Image Issue 96 features a profile of theater director Karin Coonrod. On the cover is the nativity scene from her staging of a medieval mystery play in the streets of Orvieto, Italy. John Skillen, who wrote the profile, also interviewed her for our website on her latest production, Babette’s Feast, now running in the New York. In nine short essays, poets including Alicia Ostriker, Lorna Goodison, Ed Hirsch, and Zeina Hashem Beck reflect on favorite hymns and spiritual songs. And five pastors, liturgists, and scholars reflect on the place of song and poetry in liturgy. Edward Dougherty interviews poet Margaret Gibson on Zen, loss, the via negativa, and life in the woods. John Kohan discovers the new iconographers of Ukraine, whose work reflects the complicated history of their home. Fiction by Gershon Ben-Avraham offers a surprising vision of the peaceable kingdom. With poems by Graham Hillard, Ashley Wong, Margaret Gibson, Cortney Lamar Charleston, Scott Cairns, Luci Shaw, Allison Seay, and others.
