This cycle of poems travels the trail of the Gospel of Mark, rereading and retelling the tale, flashing again and waiting for, studying from strange vantage issues, flowing with the author's point of view and rowing opposed to it. Crossing the genres of poetry and biblical interpretation, the poems themselves turn into the way to adventure the Gospel of Mark.

"Terse, teasing, quixotic, discomfiting, needling away at brain and mind's eye, Cynthia Kittredge's poems reflect the traits of Mark's Gospel. studying them singly, or as a complete series, invitations the reader into disconcerting perplexity and opaqueness, but bargains the possibility of cleansed seeing, amazing angles of imaginative and prescient, renewed and extra dicy faith."
--Nicola Slee, writer of Praying Like a Woman

"Buy this ebook! you are going to continue those poems shut handy, returning to them repeatedly. learn the entire Gospel of Mark--aloud--without distraction of units and tasks. Do it back. Then learn a few of these poems--again undistracted by means of devices--and in another quiet time learn extra, or an analogous ones, back. Kittredge will lead you into immersion within the Gospel, into probing, difficult, wondering, clean encounters, flashes of recent perception. . . . operating during the Gospel with the provocation of those poems could be a continual technique: revealing and unveiling."
--Richard Horsley, writer of listening to the total Story
