Poetic Faith
 (Winter 2018) is a singular study of timeless themes in the poet's practice. With disarming clarity and compassion, Mutschlecner celebrates our “radical contingency,” the “active mystery of what most vitally informs the world.” Gazing with the author through the lens of theopoetics, we see poetry shine a radiant and forgiving light into theology, cleansing it of dogmatism while nurturing inclusivity.

"These terse essays fearlessly take on the most daunting subjects: beauty, signification, revelation, presence, relationship. His inquiries transpire inside the clearest language and progress with a guileless, un-ironic depth of care and commitment.… Suddenly, the reader finds herself in the midst of a universe that peels back its skin to reveal its living core.” (Elizabeth Robinson)
