Roger Wagner is one of the most significant Christian artists and poets working today. This collection combines his poems and paintings in pairs to explore specific places and familiar biblical narratives, inviting us to see them from new and unexpected angles. Roger's poems and pictures range over a wide terrain. Some are located in particular places in Oxfordshire and Suffolk and in particular moments of spiritual autobiography. Others take their starting point from biblical stories or moments in church history. Together, they show that to grasp spiritual truths we often need to approach them from different directions at the same time.

Roger Wagner

Roger Wagner read English at Oxford and studied art at the Royal College of Art. He is co-author of The Penultimate Curiosity (OUP), a major work exploring the relationship between science and religion, plus a number of poetry volumes published by Enitharmon.
