About-

This cycle of poems travels the path of the Gospel of Mark, rereading and retelling the story, flashing back and anticipating, reading from unusual vantage points, flowing with the author's perspective and rowing against it. Crossing the genres of poetry and biblical interpretation, the poems themselves become a way to experience the Gospel of Mark.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Terse, teasing, quixotic, discomfiting, needling away at mind and imagination, Cynthia Kittredge's poems mirror the qualities of Mark's Gospel. Reading them singly, or as a whole sequence, invites the reader into disconcerting perplexity and opaqueness, yet offers the prospect of cleansed seeing, surprising angles of vision, renewed and more risky faith."
--Nicola Slee, author of Praying Like a Woman

"Buy this book! You will keep these poems close at hand, returning to them again and again. Read the whole Gospel of Mark--aloud--without distraction of devices and duties. Do it again. Then read some of these poems--again undistracted by devices--and in some other quiet time read more, or the same ones, again. Kittredge will lead you into immersion in the Gospel, into probing, puzzling, questioning, fresh encounters, flashes of new insight. . . . Working through the Gospel with the provocation of these poems will be a continuing process: revealing and unveiling."
--Richard Horsley, author of Hearing the Whole Story
