This cycle of poems travels the trail of the Gospel of Mark, rereading and retelling the tale, flashing again and awaiting, interpreting from strange vantage issues, flowing with the author's standpoint and rowing opposed to it. Crossing the genres of poetry and biblical interpretation, the poems themselves turn into how to event the Gospel of Mark.

"Terse, teasing, quixotic, discomfiting, needling away at brain and mind's eye, Cynthia Kittredge's poems replicate the characteristics of Mark's Gospel. interpreting them singly, or as an entire 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

"Buy this publication! you are going to hold those poems shut handy, returning to them many times. learn the entire Gospel of Mark--aloud--without distraction of units and tasks. Do it back. Then learn a few of these poems--again undistracted by means of devices--and in another quiet time learn extra, or an identical ones, back. Kittredge will lead you into immersion within the Gospel, into probing, perplexing, wondering, clean encounters, flashes of recent perception. . . . operating during the Gospel with the provocation of those poems might be a continual strategy: revealing and unveiling."
--Richard Horsley, writer of listening to the entire Story
