Isaac Anderson and the Lord God Bird

My friend Isaac Anderson has an essay in the current Image Journal. For those of you who already know Isaac & his work – you can click here and buy the current issue & have Isaac’s essay delivered to you. For those of you who don’t know Isaac – allow me to introduce you, then you can go buy the issue.
Isaac is a recent graduate of Kansas State University, and more recently Ohio State University where he received an MFA in creative non-fiction. Isaac is a part of the Jacob’s Well leadership team and is a Kansas City native. Isaac is also a great musician, and part of The Well Dressed Downs. You can listen & purchase some of their stuff here – “Retrace” & “Change Your Mind” are well worth a listen.
Isaac’s major preoccupation is writing. He is currently the Writer-in-residence at Lenoir-Rhyne University. Isaac’s work has appeared in Image, Fourth River, The Writer’s Chronicle, Portland, Ohioana Quarterly, The Voice Project, and elsewhere. He co-authored Economy of Love (The House Studio, 2010). Isaac was the winner of the prose contest at Ashland University’s 2009 Literary Arts Festival, and he has served as a reader for River Teeth: A Journal of Nonfiction Narrative.
From Isaac’s bio at the Lenoir-Rhyne website: “I can sympathize with the skeptics,” he writes, “those who see in such ideas only wish-fulfillment and fertile soil for megalomania. I can sympathize with their skepticism because to some degree I share it, and want to share it, as I do not want the day to come when whatever hope I’ve placed in the existence of a God is no longer sharpened to a fine point by reasoned doubts.” He is currently at work on a book-length “memoir of belief” entitled Seek What You Vow
