Issue 63


Gregory Wolfe writes about Saint Irenaeus of Lyons and how “we are all thirty seconds away from salvation”; James MacMillans argues that sacred music still matters; and Gordon Fuglie explores Guy Kinnear’s paintings of men “on the verge.” Plus, in Nicole Miller’s fiction we find ourselves in the ruins of a church, desperately; and Santiago Ramos writes all about cinematic superheroes. With poems by Robert Cording, Nancy Willard, and Carrie Jerrell; and more.
