Sweet Jesus: Poems about the Ultimate Iconby Nick Carbo
Over 60 contributors, including Kim Addonizio, Sherman Alexie, Mary Karr, Maxine Kumin, Molly Peacock, Hal Sirowitz, Virgil Su�rez and James Tate. Foreword by Dan Wakefield. "There is nothing irreverent in true poetic imagination: No matter what experience these writers have of Jesus, they honor their visions. This marvelous anthology rescues Jesus from religious fundamentalists of all kinds, restoring Him to His rightful place as a force for tolerance, acceptance and inspiration. Every poem here shines" Holly Prado. "Reading these refreshing, iconoclastic poems, which prove that the poetry is not in the piety, I felt the way you do when you read about someone innocent being let out of an institution in which he had been wrongly-and for many years-incarcerated" Eleanor Wilner.
