"The poems in this book are improvisations arising from contemplative readings of four chapters of the 1611 edition of the King James Bible—Matthew VI, Mark V, Luke XV and Luke X. Lectio Violant—‘profane reading’—is the name I’ve coined to describe this process, alluding to Lectio Divina—‘divine reading’—the long-established Catholic practice of devotional reading, the purpose of which is to draw the reader closer to God by enabling a fuller experience of scripture. I’m not sure this book’s doing the same thing, although you never know." —Steve Ely
