Upon first look, it used to be typical to attempt and position the hot assortment in shut proximity to the previous. It speedy grew to become transparent to me that this was once a perilous mistake. even though William is working within the comparable area, there's an immense and diversified temperament to the poems in “Still existence Forms.” Don’t get me flawed. there is not any jettisoning of past principles. the entire common supernatural/natural relational dynamics and philosophical dialogues are nonetheless there. Man’s position sooner than God, believers, unbelievers, production, sin, loss of life and redemption are all out in complete. because the name of the gathering indicates, despite the fact that, there's powerful subject matter of God’s intentionality in it all. There looks much less suffering from the life of those relationships and extra probing into what God is doing via them. I’m no longer speaking a few cliched evangelical “God is Sovereign” reaction, yet fairly a discovery of God’s glory by means of observing even the main tricky and jarring “Still Life.” even if the name is an allusion to the paintings shape itself, a last touch upon the continuity of the created order, or either, it really is transparent that the writer is becoming more well-off together with his position on this planet. now not cozy within the feel of pride, yet really cozy like a workman whose top paintings is completed while he is familiar with the limitations of his assets and the instruments he makes use of to hone his craft. This being the case, I in actual fact wish we don’t need to wait one other ten years prior to we get one other glimpse of the way William sees the area. despite how lengthy it takes, i'm hoping he continues to be precise to his craft and can provide another cause to compliment the daddy.
