"This thoughtful and thorough reading of Vincent's letters and art places Cliff Edwards in the vanguard of those how would relate art and religious studies...learn how Vincent united nature, modern literature,...with his vision of a person's place in the universe.
--Dr. Robert L. Perkins, Chair, Department of Philosophy, Stetson University
"Finally someone opens up for us Vincent's deepest quest and convincingly shows that the art of the 'sorrowful, yet always rejoicing' Dutch painter is of deep theological and spiritual significance."
--Henri J. M. Nouwen
