For those who pastor, and those who do not, this is a perfect book. A fine resource, a pleasure and sometimes a challenge.

This is a very interesting and commendable effort. David Curzon chooses Biblical passages and around them gathers modern poetry. They are meant to be a kind of Midrash, an imaginative interpretative extension of the text. He also includes an introductory essay and one on the ' Pleasures of Midrash'.The list of poets is long and largely distinguished .The book is rich in suggestion and inspiration and highly recommended.
