Poetry has a power all its own. It casts a potent light that enables you to view the world, and your experiences in it, anew. Through poetry you can enter a sacred space, one of prayer and introspection.
This innovative book offers a collection of reflections on the Year A Sunday Gospels as seen through the classical poetry of such writers as Denise Levertov, John Donne, and Thomas Merton. Their words will challenge you to enter each Gospel passage in a unique way, one that leads to richer communion with God.
Prayerful contemplation of the Gospels viewed through the prism of poetry will encourage your application of Jesus' teachings to daily life. Through Another Lens is a valuable tool for deepening your sense of God in the Sunday readings.
