About-

Biblical Poems Embedded in Biblical Narratives is an easy-to-use course book that synthesizes Sharon Chace’s interests in poetry, art, and biblical studies. Pastors and teachers will be able to craft their unique presentations for the first session—introducing both the subject and each other—based upon Sharon’s introduction. The following sessions include reflections and practices to evoke responses from participants.

This course is ideal for teachers who want their students to both think critically and explore their own spirituality. Chace’s bridge-building theology, rooted in the humanities, is timely. Academic discourse, warm personal reflections, and a keen understanding of human nature combine in this instructional tool to create a broadly appropriate and engaging course.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Sharon Chace’s rigorous theological training and her intuitive poetic sensibility combine to create this work of bridge-building. Her dual focus on our common humanity (the necessity of caring for the sick and needy) and the ‘ineffable’ nature of God (‘too much certainty is the archenemy of wisdom’) helps to connect secular humanists to Christians and poets to biblical scholars.”

—James R. Scrimgeour, Professor Emeritus, Western Connecticut State University, Poet Laureate, New Milford, Connecticut



“Sharon R. Chace’s latest book is one she was decidedly qualified to produce. Calling it a ‘late in life synthesis’ of her interests in art, biblical studies, and poetry, Chace has crafted a methodology—a short course, really—for exploring the artistry of biblical authors and for appreciating the theological inscape revealed through the poetry woven into their biblical narratives. This thought-provoking book belongs in theological libraries and in the hands of serious religious educators.”

—Steve Dalton, Head Librarian, Theology and Ministry Library, Boston College
