Bearing the Mystery: Twenty Years of Image


Bearing the Mystery brings together in one handsome volume the best fiction, poetry, essays, and visual art from Image‘s first twenty years—the work of nearly seventy writers and twenty visual artists (represented in sixteen glorious color plates). With a special introduction by founder and editor Gregory Wolfe that meditates on the journal’s mission, Bearing the Mystery is indeed a treasure-hoard.
