Word Made Fresh

An Invitation to Poetry for the Church
  • Foreword by Shane McCrae
  • By Abram Van Engen
Product Description
Have you ever read a book that turned your world upside down? What about a poem?

Poetry has the power to enliven, challenge, change, and enrich our lives. But it can also feel intimidating, confusing, or simply "not for us." In these joyful and wise reflections, Abram Van Engen shows readers how poetry is for everyone--and how it can reinvigorate our Christian faith.

Intertwining close readings with personal storytelling, Van Engen explains how and why to read poems as a spiritual practice. Far from dry, academic instruction, his approach encourages readers to delight in poetry, even as they come to understand its form. He also opens up the meaning of poetry and parables in Scripture, revealing the deep connection between literature and theology.

Word Made Fresh is more than a guide to poetry--it's an invitation to wonder, to speak up, to lament, to praise. Including dozens of poems from diverse authors, this book will inspire curious and thoughtful readers to see God and God's creation in surprising new ways.
