Throughout her life, Jane Herring struggled to hear what scripture had to say to her. She began wondering if the Bible was either too complicated a book to read in a meaningful way or too puzzling to actually mean anything at all. It was only when she started speaking back to scripture—putting pen to paper to write poetry, lists, stories, and letters—that Herring’s relationship with the Bible began to unfold.
Filled with down-to-earth stories, One Day I Wrote Back offers insight and perspective on scripture passages. Herring invites readers to use faith, reason, and imagination as they write in response to each week’s scripture.
