Prayer Requested book description

Here is the book description from Amazon. BUY BUY BUY!

Succinctly stated and punctuated with a sharp-edged visual style, Prayer Requested presents a narrative of illustrations and collages, each one accompanied by a found or scavenged prayer. First excerpted in Nicolas Robel’s B.ΓΌ.L.B Comix, the works of Prayer Requested are equal parts inspiring, amusing, enlightening, and in some cases entirely peculiar, each marrying heartfelt intent with frank, unflattering interpretation.

With a roster of clients that includes The New York Times, Playboy, and Rolling Stone, Christian Northeast provides illustrations that are honest and without reservation. They represent a creativity and freedom of thought and form, cleverly depicting the intimacy, urgency, and absurdity of these found prayers with a sense of explicit surrealism.

I'm not sure what "explicit surrealism" is, but I think it's good.
