"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

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."
