By Cynthia Briggs Kittredge

This cycle of poems travels the trail of the Gospel of Mark, rereading and retelling the tale, flashing again and looking ahead to, interpreting 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 how 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 chance of cleansed seeing, miraculous angles of imaginative and prescient, renewed and extra dicy faith."
--Nicola Slee, writer of Praying Like a Woman
