--Nicola Slee, writer of Praying Like a Woman
"Buy this booklet! you'll maintain those poems shut handy, returning to them time and again. learn the full Gospel of Mark--aloud--without distraction of units and tasks. Do it back. Then learn a few of these poems--again undistracted through devices--and in another quiet time learn extra, or a similar ones, back. Kittredge will lead you into immersion within the Gospel, into probing, confusing, wondering, clean encounters, flashes of latest perception. . . . operating in the course of the Gospel with the provocation of those poems should be a continuous strategy: revealing and unveiling."
