Imperfection

"... aspirations to perfection awaken us to our actual imperfection." It is in the space between these aspirations and our inability to achieve them that Grant reflects upon imperfection. Grant argues that an awareness of imperfection, defined as both suffering and the need for justice, drive us to an unrelenting search for perfection, freedom, and self-determination. The twenty-one brief chapters of Imperfection develop this governing idea as it relates to the present situation of the God debate, modern ethnic conflicts, and the pursuit of freedom in relation to the uncertainties of personal identity and the quest for self-determination. Known for his exploration of the relationship between...

Reading Vincent van Gogh

Soon after his death, Vincent van Gogh’s reputation grew and developed through the extraordinary symbiosis evident between his paintings and letters. However it is a formidable task to read and analyze Van Gogh's nearly eight hundred letters due to the sheer bulk and complexity of the collection. Reading Vincent van Gogh is at once an interpretive guide to the letters and a distillation of Van Gogh’s key themes and ideas. This indispensable, synoptic, and interpretive view of the letters as a whole will be equally of interest to scholars and teachers making use of Van Gogh’s letters as it will be to those who have long been fascinated by the artist. This is the third book by Patrick Grant on the letters of Vincent van Gogh. It builds on his previous work in The Letters of Vincent van Gogh (2014), a practical-critical study, and “My Own Portrait in Writing” (2015), a literary theoretical analysis that draws on the domain of modern literary studies. In the hands of Patrick Grant, the extraordinary literary achievements of Vincent van Gogh are explained and exemplified and claims that the well-known artist was also a great writer are confirmed.

Recent literary criticism and biblical scholarship are used here to discuss the New Testament's depiction of faith. The author argues that these tools can be used to present problems of religious belief imaginatively, and to bring home the full challenge of faith.

Buy the Rumor

This is the story of a level of political and financial corruption Washington and Wall Street doesn't want told. Washington lobbyist Tim Ryan has mastered the art of collecting and monetizing non-public information for his clients, and has proven he will do anything to get crucial information on legislative and regulatory proposals. When Tim faces scrutiny from federal enforcement agencies, loyalties are tested as he tries to protect himself and his friends on Wall Street, but wonders if he can rely on his clients to protect him. As the pressures on him mounts, Tim's personal demons spiral out of control, and he begins to question the fundamental value of his life and profession. "Buy the Rumor" is a fictional account of the illegal flow of information from Washington to Wall Street. The book sheds light on the routine nature of political and financial corruption, and explores the impact corruption has on the individuals who perpetrate it.

The Letters of Vincent van Gogh

When he died at the age of thirty-seven, Vincent van Gogh left a legacy of over two thousand artworks, for which he was justly famous. But van Gogh was also a prodigious writer of letters—more than eight hundred of them, addressed to his parents, to friends such as Paul Gauguin and, above all, to his brother Theo. His letters have long been admired for their exceptional literary quality, and art historians have sometimes drawn on some of the letters in their analysis of the paintings. And yet, to date, no one has undertaken a critical assessment of this remarkable body of writing—not as a footnote to the paintings but as a highly sophisticated literary achievement in its own right.
