Reviews

"With the exception of the New Testament itself, I'm unable to recall another work in verse that relates the life of Christ more movingly than David Southward does in this remarkable sonnet series. The story's wrenching beauty is of course deeply familiar to us all, yet Southward manages to reconstruct it by blending traditional prosody with our own contemporary English lexicon, thus making it new--and newly memorable."
--Marilyn L. Taylor. Wisconsin Poet Laureate, Emerita

"David Southward creates, with a series of sure-footed sonnets, a life of Christ in many human voices: of Jesus, Joseph, Mary, Mary Magdalene, Peter, James, Judas, an unnamed Pharisee, a Roman soldier, and even the Devil. With curious attention and gentle irony, in these poems Southward composes a Gospel of his own."
--James Najarian, Boston College
