A Treasure in Verse  Feb 25, 2008
The Poetic Bible is one of those delightful finds. I keep dipping into it just a bit, then finding an hour later that I have to remind myself I have things I need to do. It is a broad cross-section of poetry written around Biblical themes and following the order of the Bible from Genesis to Revelations. There are poems a thousand years old, and there are works by recent and contemporary poets. There are works that flow effortlessly (I'll risk guessing the authors put a great deal of effort into their choice of words before I could catch the beauty in a first reading). There are also works that have me running for a dictionary repeatedly, because Old English was usually very precise and there is too much richness to make a vague guess at the author's meaning. There are also many "Traditional Black American Spiritual" poems.

Even the introduction (something I too often skip) is a wonderful essay on poetry in general and an insightful look at the language of poetry in the Bible and the way our modern separation of poetry and prose handicaps our reading of the Bible.

I'm sometimes just a bit disappointed when I bring a book of poetry home. This is one I'm going to treasure. Because of the way it is organized, it also lends itself very well to tying into many key Bible stories, so for any who use poetry in sermons, this might be a wonderful resource, especially if you can put a bit of black flavor into your delivery. A lot of the Traditional Black American Spirituals seem to be older, simpler versions than the ones I have come across before.

A treasure and highly recommended.
