"Spirit of the World" was edited by David Joseph Marcou, who's directed-edited 13 group-anthologies that began with the extended education writing and photo classes he taught at Western Tech in La Crosse. DJM turned around St. Paul's rejection of the spirit of the world, writing instead, "Encounter the spirit of the world and redeem it through the spirit of God.... Thus, miracles are made." Many notable writers and editors contributed, covering 7 continents: Mary J. Eisenhower (Dwight granddaughter and CEO of People to People International) wrote the Introduction and contributed photos. Life Mag photogs Gordon Parks and Dmitri Kessel added 1 pic each near outset. Onalaska photog Bob Mulock added his sterling pic of fog on a Wisconsin River bridge. British photog Paul Stewart wrote-photographed "Reverberations: Remembering the Holocaust", about his visit to former deathcamps Auschwitz and Birkenau. Former Mizzou Photo-J Director Angus McDougall contributed a pic of kite-flying in Wisconsin, and successor David Rees contributed a Latin American rainbow pic. Milwaukee photojournalist Rick Wood contributed a silhouette of boys playing soccer in Somalia. Korean photog Jean Chung contributed photo-essays on the 2004 tsunami and on the Holy Land. Msgr. Bernard McGarty wrote the text for Prof. Roger A. Grant's pics from Ireland. Steve Kiedrowski contributed pics for "Vacation Paradise (Florida)". LaVonne Zietlow created a vibrant family photo-montage. Carole Edland's gorgeous pics include her view of Monet's Garden. CSMonitor photog Melanie S. Freeman contributed a pic of young females wearing Sunday best in Haiti. Former British Journal of Photography Editor Jon Tarrant contributed dramatic pics, including his photo-portrait of artist Cornel Lucas. John Zoerb contributed "Inclined Toward Beauty". Other pros, family and friends added decent pics, too. DJM and son's pics include DJM's photo-portraits of Bert Hardy and Mother Teresa and MAM's mural-photo from DC's Nat. Basilica. Job well-done.
