Brian Volck Remembers Paul Scofield

Among my friends, the man with the most impressive voice for reading and public speaking is probably Brian Volck, a pediatrician, coauthor of Reclaiming the Body: Christians and the Faithful Use of Modern Medicine (Brazos Press, 2006), and a recent graduate of Seattle Pacific’s MFA in Creative Writing program.

Thus it seemed only fitting that Image journal would publish something of Brian’s in remembrance of an actor with an unforgettable voice: Paul Scofield.

It’s the second reflection on Scofield’s career published at the Image blog. The first was by Image publisher and editor Greg Wolfe himself.

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
