Comment by John P.

I've loved modern American poetry for some time(A poem by Stanley Kunitz called "The Layers" helped renew my call to ministry in my first church back in the late '70s) But I never thought of a way that modern poetry could be used to enrich a literary reading of one of the Gospels! This author isn't a pastor but is a university professor of literature at VPI. In my experience you have to be extremely selective when using modern poetry in sermons, but I'm fascinated by this author's use of modern poetry to elucidate key portions of the Gospel of John.
