The knowledge and experience of God and the sacred are deemed central for purpose, value, meaning, redemption, and joy. While the poetry is Christian-based and this book is primarily intended for a Christian readership, people of other spiritual faiths, or no religious faith at all, will find new ways to look at what is meant by God, Jesus Christ, faith and the sacred in an age of profane consciousness and culture. The ideas and ideals of the Christian faith can be integrated into one's life, and each poem offers a fresh perspective at pursuing a life filled with purpose, value, and joy. The holy absurdity and strangeness of the Christian vision is provocatively presented through a counter-intuitive use of language, metaphors, and images. The reader is challenged to not only experience original insights, but to have what is familiar become strangely new and meaningful.
