KIRKUS REVIEW

These are eighty-four brief meditations on Romans 12, in the form of short rhymed verses, each prefaced by a Biblical text and followed by a short prayer. The center of many of the meditations is in the experiences of the natural world--sky, flowers, wild geese, gardens scenes. Occasionally, the verse rises to a level of poetic figure and well-turned phrase. Much of it remains at the level of rhymed, prosaic observation and comment. A number of the meditations have appeared previously in religious magazines. The author would appear to have in mind their possible use as materials for services of worship, as well as for private reading.
