The Road To Emmaus


"So I fell away from the church.... But I did not fall away from the Bible. The language, the rhythm, the poetry, and the unparalleled grandeur of the King James Bible stayed with me and continued to inform and flavor my thinking, my language, my writing, and my images. And when I came to it again, thirty-seven years later as designer and illustrator, the surgically sharp edge of certainty that I knew as a preacher-boy had given way to a ragged and rusty edge of uncertainty. The uncertainty of a middle-aged agnostic reprobate.... I ventured into uncertainty -- and into self. I traveled in the cold much of the time, and often on very thin ice. I did not have a map. And for this kind of work I think that this is the only place to be -- uncomfortable, uncertain, and unarmed."
