Recommendation :: The Russian Dreambook of Colour and Flight :: Gina Ochsner

Hands down, Gina Ochsner's The Russian Dreambook of Colour and Flight is the best book I've read all summer. Incredibly beautiful, deeply true, heartbreaking and funny.

Give it a read. (That's all I'll say)

Also: Meghan Young published a stunning review in The Other Journal. This makes for good reading too.

Review :: The Red Letters Project :: Book of Matthew

I got excited when I saw that ViralBloggers had a musical interpretation of the words of Christ from Matthew up for review. Me and music go way back, just like me and the Gospel of Matthew. An artist can open up new ways of seeing familiar things. This happened for me my junior year of college with Apt.Core’s Rhythms of Remembrance; the Lord’s Prayer became the beat I live my life to with the song “Kingdom.” I hoped that The Red Letters Project: Book of Matthew would break me open to something new in the same way.
I was excited enough to save the three-disc project for a six hour road trip to visit some friends and their new baby in Evansville, Indiana. There is a lot of artistic space in Jesus’ words in Matthew. As I inserted disc one into my car CD player, I hoped Mario Canido (the artist behind TRLP) would open up the text of Matthew like a prayer candle in a Byzantine monastery.
