Loving the Poems That Carry Your Culture and Faith
In every age—till very recently—there was one dominant way we passed our culture, knowledge, and devotion to the next generation.
It was poetry.
Poetry entertained people as it bothered them, preoccupied them, and stayed with them for life. Poetry offered a new lens, a creative angle, a thought-provoking perspective on life in all its dimensions.
We have lost much if we have lost the capacity to appreciate poems and allow them to pique our curiosity and gratification of life. This book is about gaining—or regaining—the ability to enjoy poems in all their artful and constructive ways of communicating the human experience.
