Summer Reading Guide


As I mentioned in an earlier post, I wrote the Summer Reading Guide for the May/June issue of Relevant. The magazine should be on newsstands today, tomorrow, or early next week. However, the Reading Guide is online now. Also online are short interviews I conducted with Makoto Fujimura and Father Emmanuel Katongole, excerpts of which appear in the magazine. Fr. Katongole is a Catholic priest, an associate professor at Duke Divinity School, and the author of “Mirror to the Church: Resurrecting Faith After Genocide in Rwanda.” Fujimura is a painter, the founder of the International Arts Movement, and the author of “Refractions: A Journey of Faith, Art, and Culture.” (The Relevant website also features an excerpt from “Refractions.”)

The above image is Fujimura’s “Between Two Waves of the Sea,” which was inspired by the fourth of T.S. Eliot’s “The Four Quartets.”

But heard, half-heard, in the stillness
Between two waves of the sea.
Quick now, here, now, always-
A condition of complete simplicity

  1. We just got our copy in the mail yesterday. How cool is it to open an official magazine and have a major article with your name on it? LOVE IT!

  2. Thanks, babe. Yeah, it is kind of cool.
