Poet Daniel Klawitter turns his well-trained eye toward Holy Scripture in this entertaining and thought-provoking poetry chapbook riffing off of Bible verses. Rich in both pathos and humor, these non-dogmatic poems wrestle with issues of ageing, homophobia, marriage, environmental destruction, and the naked disciple in the Gospel of Mark (among many other topics). Klawitter (who was an ordained minister in the United Methodist Church for over a decade and a recipient of the Ronald E. Sleeth preaching award) has been described by author David J. Rothman as "a sly poet capable of great sweetness and formal grace," and those traits are on full display in this delightful collection that blurs the categories between the sacred and the secular.
