For years, Dale Brown has interviewed American writers, listening particularly for what they have to say about "wrestling with the sacred" in their writing. In this book, a follow-up to his earlier collection, Of Fiction and Faith, Brown gives readers the opportunity to listen in on his thoughtful conversations with ten contemporary writers.While many of these authors shy away from being labeled "Christian" writers, they all have much truth to tell through their work as they struggle with expressing both faith and doubt. The conversations recorded here offer a fresh dialogue on the power of art to sustain faith in unexpected ways.Interviews with: Eleanor Taylor Bland, David James Duncan, Terence Faherty, Ernest Gaines, Philip Gulley, Ron Hansen, Silas House, Jan Karon, Sheri Reynolds, Lee Smith.

The "Design Companion for the Digital Artist" provides the missing elements in the digital artist's library. While many people can learn how to use QuarkXPress, PageMaker, Adobe Illustrator, Macromedia Flash, and other graphic applications, books designed to teach specific applications simply can't deliver information on what looks good. This work focuses on just that--fundamental and proven methods of building and designing effective and attractive pages. From where to get ideas to how to deliver them most effectively, this book introduces concepts such as the proper use of space, the best way to arrange elements on a page, what people see, and much, much more. Whatever book the reader is using to learn the technical application of digital tools, the techniques and issues provided in this book will dramatically improve their results. A Hard Look at Creativity; Developing the Concept; Abstraction, Symbolism, and Visual Metaphor; Putting it all Together; Shape/Container Relationship; Layout; Line; Type; Color; Paper, Binding, and Finishing; Using Pictures Effectively; Publication Design; Illustration; Corporate Identity; Point-of Purchase Display and Packaging; Advertising Design; Web Design and Multimedia.
