  • Gregory Wolfe Joins Editorial Team at Wipf and Stock Publishers

    Wolfe’s imprint, Slant, to become a full line of literary books,
    including fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and more

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

    Eugene, OR, March 7, 2019— Wipf & Stock, a growing publisher based in the Pacific Northwest, is proud to announce that it has hired Gregory Wolfe to expand his imprint, Slant, into an ambitious line of literary works intended for the trade market.

    Wolfe brings to the position more than three decades of experience as an editor, publisher, writer, teacher, and thought leader in the realms of art, literature, and religion.

    Wolfe is the founder of Image—one of America’s leading literary journals, which he edited for thirty years. He was also the founding director of the Seattle Pacific University MFA in Creative Writing program. Wolfe’s writing has appeared in numerous publications, including the Washington PostWall Street JournalFirst ThingsCommonweal, and America. In 2005 he was a judge for the National Book Awards. His books include Beauty Will Save the WorldIntruding Upon the Timeless, and The Operation of Grace. He is married to the novelist, Suzanne M. Wolfe. They are the parents of four grown children and live in Richmond Beach, Washington.

    When asked about his hopes for Slant, Wolfe said: “We’re going to stay true to our original vision for the imprint, which is to present literature “that explores the mysteries of the human heart and understands that the truth of the human condition can only be approached indirectly, through metaphor and character.”

    Wolfe continued: “The expansion of Slant into a full line of books is both a daunting task and an exciting prospect. Throughout my career I’ve enjoyed not only publishing some of our era’s most gifted authors but also discovering and developing new voices—something I intend to continue through Slant.”

    Wolfe concluded: “The opportunity to publish in every literary genre will provide Slant with a large canvas. I’m planning not only to publish fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction but also literary and cultural criticism with an emphasis on the ever-relevant theme of Christian Humanism, and perhaps even reprinting some classic books that have gone out of print. My concern with Slant, as it has been in everything I’ve done, is to uphold the highest standards of thought and literary craft.”

    W&S Publisher Jon Stock commented: “We are thrilled to have Greg Wolfe on board. Greg has always been a pioneer—whether it’s founding Image, the Glen Workshop, or the SPU MFA program—and we’re eagerly anticipating his breaking new ground with Slant in the coming years.”

    Wolfe’s wife, Suzanne M. Wolfe, his creative partner in both life and literary endeavor, also joins Slant as Senior Editor.

    William O’Flaherty has collected a growing list (over 70 at last count) of quotations attributed to Lewis that will be the focus of an upcoming book, The Misquotable C.S. Lewis, to be published by Wipf and Stock in mid-2018. While uncovering the questionable quotations, he discovered not all of them are the same type of misquote. While most are sayings falsely attributed to Lewis, a few are very close to what he actually said but are worded incorrectly and some are simply removed from their context, leading to misunderstanding.

  • How Absurd Shall We Then Live? a book review

    Print"If theology is, in some sense, biography, Gospel of the Absurd (Wipf & Stock, 2017) bubbles up from R. Scot Miller’s circuitous faith journey. Miller grew up Lutheran in Flint, Michigan, rejected his childhood faith, and found belonging among anarchist and Marxist groups, practicing resistance in Detroit’s punk scene of the 1980s. There, he succumbed to a crack-cocaine addiction. His journey back to faith coincided with his journey into recovery."
