Psalms Redux, Poems and prayers by Carla A. Grosch-Miller
Psalms Redux, Poems and prayers by Carla A. Grosch-Miller. These striking and memorable poems are contemporary reworkings of an ancient collection of poetic texts, the Psalms. The Psalms are noted as much for their raw honesty as for their beauty and depth. No human experience or emotion is considered off-limits and the writers rage at God for life's incomprehensible cruelty as freely as they exult in life's blessings. Carla Grosch-Miller takes these powerful voices and themes and transposes them from a distant and ancient culture to a contemporary one with recognizable images and metaphors. Some sixty refreshed Psalms reflect the wrestling that accompanies new understandings of God. Others are wholly new and are written for specific occasions and events in modern life. Psalms Redux is not intended to supplant the Psalms that are the poetry of our faith. Rather they are aids for those who are seeking to refresh their vocabulary of prayer and worship. Number of Pages 96 Paperback Edition. Size: 198mm high x 126mm wide x 7mm depth.
