The Instruments of Art
Religion, personal experiences of faith, and parallels between artistic and godly creation are explored in this collection of emotionally raw poems that focus on the suffering and love required by the God of the Old Testament and the poet's own struggle with religious endeavors. The lives, works, personal sacrifices, and inspirations of Edvard Munch, Van Gogh, and others are also discussed.
