Jesus the Imagination

A Journal of Spiritual Revolution (Volume One, 2017)

Michael Martin

“Our intention is not altogether modest: the regeneration of Christian art and culture.”
—Michael Martin

Why should Christians read Meister Eckhart, Simone Weil, and William Blake? How do the mystic and the artist invite us to encounter the mystery of Christ’s being in the world? What are the links between our work to bring the Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven; the work of the artist; and the remaking of the world that began at the Resurrection?

Volume One of JESUS THE IMAGINATION features innovative poetry, essays, artwork, translations, and a never before published interview with Owen Barfield, an Inkling and one of the most important Christian philosophers of the twentieth century.

Contributors include Michael Martin, Therese Schroeder-Sheker, Elias Crim, Katie Hartsock, Ruth Asch, Emi Shegeno, Laura Hennig Cabral, and a host of others. Join the revolution.

Praise for Jesus the Imagination

“Michael Martin is one of those rare modern scholars who allows his speculative, artistic, and imaginative gifts to enliven and enrich his scholarship without any sacrifice of rigor.”

— DAVID BENTLEY HART, author of The Experience of God and Atheist Delusions

“Michael Martin is a poet, a theologian, and a person of philosophical inclination—all of these roles diversely, and all of them communicating with each other in his rich writings.”

— WILLIAM DESMOND, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium; Villanova University, USA
