Who is Tony Hoagland, and how is it I’ve never heard of him before? I was stunned by the beauty and bravery of his poems [May 2000]. He starts the reader down a path and then, before you realize what’s happening, brings you to a completely different, far more interesting place than you expected. I was jolted by the power of his words.

Speaking of powerful writing, Will D. Campbell’s “Reconciled” in the same issue finally gave me a definition of Christianity that I can stand behind 100 percent. That man speaks the Gospel in the radical way Jesus intended. I was changed by his story.
