    Gorgeous poems that are sending me to the book of Isaiah to appreciate further (but you don't need to be an Isaiah expert to fall in love with them!).

    Mixed feelings about this book. I love poems, and enjoyed the reflection of the book of Isaiah. But I did have some trouble. Some passages I did not understand certain words or biblical references. Perhaps that is my fault for not being as knowledgeable as I should be. Others, it was hard for me because the words did not seem to flow together. However, I am picky about my poetry. Overall, I would recommend you to give this a try. If nothing else, it will give you a few moments of reflection on h Mixed feelings about this book. I love poems, and enjoyed the reflection of the book of Isaiah. But I did have some trouble.

    I don't usually read poetry. I saw this in the giveaways and decided to enter. I'm glad I did. This was enjoyable, though sad at times. The author sprinkled in hebrew words and concepts; "How is this night different from other nights?" I've found myself re-reading some of these and when I got to the end, I looked up some of the verses that the poems are based on and read them again. This book is one that I will keep at my bedside table. I recommend it for anyone who enjoys poetry and/or the bibl I don't usually read poetry. I saw this in the giveaways and decided to enter.

    I won a copy in a Goodreads giveaway. My patron saint is Isaiah so I was very interested in reading Aviya's conversations with the Prophet's text. She connects the obvious, outside of yourself holy image of the Prophet and his warnings to her lived experiences in Israel and New York, and connects both deeply to her universal interior fire, the emotional wilderness of being alive and being a believer. From the very first poems (for me, particularly "Stubble"), you can expect to be hit in the heart. I won a copy in a Goodreads giveaway.

I lent it out immediately, and that person again lent it another woman, and so on, until it came back to me and I read it again. This is a very slim collection with a lot of power contained within it.
