A revolutionary way to pray for modern times. On one side is a bible verse from The Message by Eugene Peterson and on the other side is a relevant excerpt from a classic author. Think of it as a literary lectio divina.
Walt Whitman—free-verse avant-gardist, prophetic visionary, bohemian, nature-lover, spokesperson for the common man and woman. The Walt Whitman at the center of this book brings us along on the spiritual journey of his evolving self. The Whitman who speaks as a joiner of all people and things is conjoined at his spiritual center to Whitman the loner.
This book is the perfect gift for fans of Whitman, as well as those who have yet to discover some of his writings, and will serve as a welcome resource for those seeking a way to reignite their prayer life.
Excerpts include the following poems from Whitman’s Leaves of Grass: “Song of Myself,” “Look Down Fair Moon,” “Passage to India,” “The Mystic Trumpeter,” “Reconciliation,” “Transpositions,” and “When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d.”
