Even cynics can find inspiration in THE AMAZING FAITH OF TEXAS, a surprisingly affecting survey of fifty Texans and their beliefs from GSD&M ad agency honcho ROY SPENCE. With brief interviews by Mike Blair and telling portraits by Randal Ford, these microbiographies delve into the creeds of Baptists, Buddhists, Baha’is, and every flavor of cowboy preacher and free spirit in between. The Golden Rule proves to be the uniting thread in this patchwork quilt of believers. And their universally photogenic visages suggest that when you scratch the author’s skin, you will still draw the blood of a true ad man.
