‘A brilliant, fast-paced narrative that does so much more than make an incomprehensible book comprehensible. It shows us how white evangelicals lost our theological grounding, becoming the very monster we were supposed to resist; it emboldens us to become dissident disciples, leaving team dragon and returning to the side of the Lamb; and it gives us hope that a world where justice rolls down like water will one day be more than a dream. This is the most powerful interpretation of Revelation I have ever read, reorienting us away from bizarre prophecies and fiction bestsellers back to the truth of the gospel. You do not want to miss it.’
– Beth Allison Barr, James Vardaman Professor of History at Baylor University and bestselling author of The Making of Biblical Womanhood

“No matter where one starts reading, Devotions offers much to love, from Oliver’s exuberant dog poems to selections from the Pulitzer Prize-winning American Primitive, and Dream Work, one of her exceptional collections. Perhaps more important, the luminous writing provides respite from our crazy world and demonstrates how mindfulness can define and transform a life, moment by moment, poem by poem.”
—The Washington Post

From the National Book Award–winning author of A Wrinkle in Time, three poignant novels exploring the power of love, family, and secrets.
The Other Side of the Sun: In this atmospheric novel of suspense set in the turn-of-the-century South, a nineteen-year-old British newlywed must stay with her American husband’s family on their South Carolina estate when he is called away on a diplomatic mission. She soon discovers her in-laws are not who they appear to be—as she stirs up dark secrets that were meant to remain buried.
A Live Coal in the Sea: After her teenage granddaughter poses a troubling question, Dr. Camilla Dickinson must confront the painful history she’s long kept hidden as she relates a complex saga involving her beautiful, adulterous mother; her troubled son; and the difficult choices that have affected three generations.
A Winter’s Love: Emily Bowen’s marriage is hanging by a thread after hardships befall her family. During their sabbatical in Switzerland, a man from her past returns, offering the affection she craves, and Emily must decide if she’s willing to sacrifice the life she’s built for an unseen future.

“This is a bold, beautiful memoir, at once transgressive and faithful. Marsh embodies a theology with the courage to tackle the taboo, including depression and desire, in prose that is evocative and seductive. In the end, we learn that the most astounding grace is found in the God we can tell our secrets.”
— James K.A. Smith, Calvin University, editor in chief, Image, author of You Are What You Love, On the Road with Saint Augustine, and How to Inhabit Time
