A Lot of the Way Trees Were Walking: Poems from the Gospel by Cynthia Briggs Kittredge PDF

By Cynthia Briggs Kittredge

This cycle of poems travels the trail of the Gospel of Mark, rereading and retelling the tale, flashing again and expecting, interpreting from strange vantage issues, flowing with the author's standpoint and rowing opposed to it. Crossing the genres of poetry and biblical interpretation, the poems themselves develop into the way to adventure the Gospel of Mark.

"Terse, teasing, quixotic, discomfiting, needling away at brain and mind's eye, Cynthia Kittredge's poems reflect the features of Mark's Gospel. analyzing them singly, or as an entire series, invitations the reader into disconcerting perplexity and opaqueness, but deals the chance of cleansed seeing, miraculous angles of imaginative and prescient, renewed and extra dicy faith."
--Nicola Slee, writer of Praying Like a Woman

"Buy this e-book! you'll preserve those poems shut to hand, returning to them many times. learn the complete Gospel of Mark--aloud--without distraction of units and tasks. Do it back. Then learn a few of these poems--again undistracted by means of devices--and in another quiet time learn extra, or an analogous ones, back. Kittredge will lead you into immersion within the Gospel, into probing, difficult, wondering, clean encounters, flashes of recent perception. . . . operating during the Gospel with the provocation of those poems might be a continuous strategy: revealing and unveiling."
--Richard Horsley, writer of listening to the complete Story
