Poetic Meditations on Selected Scripture

Since coming to Christ in 1970, I have loved and studied and taught the Scriptures. Fifty-years later that love is undiminished. Along the way, my love for poetry and lyrical forms came out of my love for the Bible.

Poetic Meditations on Selected Scripture

Poetic Meditations on Selected Scripture

This devotional of poetic mediations grew out of forty-five years of expository preaching and self-reflection. The author's intermittent attempts at poetry reveal both his best and worst parts. These poems reflect experience as a follower of Jesus, an inward battle with sin, shame, sadness, defeats; yet, always the word of God leads to the gospel of Jesus Christ and his victory, his forgiveness, his power, his love, and his hope. Never without the realization of sinfulness and the sufficiency of the work of Jesus Christ, many live daily on a continuum between these two poles of striving by faith to rest in Christ and agonizing over the heart's inclination to wander. By God's grace and through his Spirit, that movement may be more toward victory than defeat.
