A love poem.
In this issue of The Other Journal, our contributors address some of the hardships of finding our way in the transformative mystery that is prayer. They consider prayer in all its questions and practicalities. They carefully think through intercessory prayer and prayerful political theology and what it means to commune with God and one another. And they dance, laugh, and pray like fools.
This review examines Crystal Downing’s Changing Signs of Truth, which successfully applies semiotics, an often arcane and inaccessible academic discipline, to the practical theological task of understanding the relationship between Christian faith and culture.
