Presence. Print Volume One: Shapes is an exploration of divine ideas for the eyes, mind, and soul. It contains five short chapters, centred in dialogue, around five biblical verses. They are accompanied by five chapter specific, electronic, ambient music tracks, which can be found online to aid the reading experience.
The book is designed to draw the reader in for an absorbing reading experience. As such, the under laying design theme I drew out became about discovery, dialogue and mystery. Therefore, hidden elements, translucent fades and almost stream-of-consciousness lyrics are used to entice you and bring you back for more. Page furniture such as index numbers and contents pages shift, varying paper types, folds and print technique add texture while bewildering typographic and photographic elements mesmerise, all offering a nod to a complex and paradoxical view of life. One that acknowledges mystery, beauty and a glorious other.

It Spooks; Living in response to an unheard call is a book of visual, poetic, and written responses to a paper by John D. Caputo. It is a creative collaboration—including a wide spectrum of contributors from diverse backgrounds and nationalities—which lends itself to the ongoing conversation of radical theology and spectral religion
John D. Caputo writes with pointed insight and a smattering of humor as he dethrones the dry bones of religious academia and deconstructs our Western understanding of God; a god he suggests does not exist, but insists. Catherine Keller, Brian McLaren, Peter Rollins and Michael Gungor and a host of academics, artists, writers, photographers, and painters offer a broad perspective of responses to Caputo’s contention of a spectral,
