A Journal of Spiritual Revolution
JESUS THE IMAGINATION, edited by Michael Martin, is an annual literary and arts journal that explores and explodes the frontiers of religious and spiritual writing. JTI features poetry, essays, and artwork that dare to welcome what the Russian philosopher described as “the apocalypse of culture.”
“Behind the ideal values there stood prophets and geniuses in their day, with creative inspiration and fire. But when monuments have been erected to the prophets and the geniuses, and the streets have been called by their names, a chilled and mediocre culture comes into shape which no longer endures a prophetic spirit and a new spirit of genius.”~ Nikolai Berdyaev
Each volume of the journal treats a different theme.
Jesus the Imagination
Vol. 7: “The Household of Things.”
The submission period for Jesus the Imagination, Volume 7: “The Household of Things” is now open.
We’re looking for poetry, essays, and other imaginative writing as well as photography and artwork that addresses what one might call “the economy of the Real.” This economy touches on all of the things that contribute to a healthy human life. We would love to see work on Distributism and alternative actual currencies as well as farming and gardening, homesteading, handcrafts, husbandry, and even education, not to mention the reimagination of conviviality and the festival year and its cosmological dimensions (including folk religion). In addition, we’re interested in work that explores the invisible world and its inhabitants, as they, too, are a part of the household of things.
The deadline for submissions is 25 March 2023.
