About-

Sparked by phrases from the book of Psalms, these poems question and occasionally affirm our everyday ideas about life, mortality, the afterlife, God, family, and belief. In vigorous contemporary language--complaining, lamenting, and wisecracking on everything from Job's wife to baseball, crows to angels, circus elephants to Mary Magdalene--but in traditional form, these sonnets, or little songs, "speak what we feel, not what we ought to say."

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Kent Gramm's Psalms for Skeptics is a lively, agile response to the traditional book of psalms, a response that opposes the psalmist's belief in a divine order to his own earthbound perspective. Irreverant and subversive, they nevertheless regard the views they question as imposing enough to deserve a passionate reply. However disbelieving they are, they are too witty and wide-ranging to be strident, ready to move from personal experience into politics and cosmology. They truly rise to the occasion."
--Carl Dennis, winner of the Pulitzer Prize in poetry, Buffalo, NY
