This lavishly illustrated monograph is the definitive publication on the internationally renowned Canadian artist Marcel Dzama. Characterized by an immediately recognizable cast of fanciful and frightening characters, Dzama’s work draws from a diverse range of influences, including Dada and Marcel Duchamp. While the artist is best known for his delicate psychosexual drawings, his work also includes sculpture, painting, and film. More than 500 color images from the late 1990s through the present trace the artistic evolution and tremendous talent of this highly acclaimed young artist. Textual contributions include a foreword by the contemporary artist Raymond Pettibon, three original short stories inspired by Dzama’s work by Dave Eggers, an essay by the art historian Bradley Bailey, and an interview with Dzama by the filmmaker Spike Jonze.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Let’s admit that being Christian is not easy. We encounter temptations of one sort or another at every turn. We are disappointed by people who hurt us. The Scriptures teach us that Jesus was completely human and subject to the same temptations and frustrations common to all of us; yet, he remained sinless. He was surrounded by bumblers and opposed by the power structures, but he never gave up on them or his mission. What was his secret? We want to say his divinity made the difference, because then we would have an excuse for our failures. Yet no such claims are found in the Scriptures. I would like to propose that Jesus’ secret was a life of prayer. Prayer was essential in Jesus’ life. Through prayer, he achieved a unity of action and purpose with God. His longing to know the mind and feel the heart of God drove him to open his life to God through prayer. Luke’s portrait of Jesus reveals one whose thoughts, words, and actions were born out of prayer. Jesus taught his disciples to pray and urged them to be persistent. Prayer, he taught them, was the way of the Kingdom of God. The study of Jesus’ prayer life can deepen our own prayer practices. Jesus prayed because he believed God loved him and wanted to share in his life. He found his identity in God; the more Jesus prayed, the more he understood God and himself. The study of Jesus’ prayer life reveals to whom we pray, how to pray, when to pray, and what to expect from prayer. As a result of these studies, we may find ourselves more comfortable with establishing a prayer lifestyle. The struggles of Jesus in prayer may give us courage to struggle with God. Prayer shaped the life and mission of Jesus, and it can shape the life and mission of the church. These five sessions examine the importance of prayer at various stages of Jesus’ life and ministry. He made no important decisions without consulting God. Jesus’ human relationships and actions were all shaped by a sense of God’s presence. As we study the lifestyle of Jesus, we may discover a lifestyle that will allow God to bring to completion the good work among us which God began in Jesus (Phil 3:6). Jesus’ life of prayer, always in harmony with God’s purpose for humanity, put him at the center of the Kingdom of God.
