Chicago poet Terry Jacobus takes us on a delightful trip through the byways of the universe where God can be "cosmic music/ resonating in continuous harmony/ throughout hyperspace" or more literally, playing baseball with the planet, "sending spirit angels/over immortal fences." A master of the aphoristic form-the lines are centered and short so the words hang in space-these musings will make you laugh out loud but also move you with their insight and sudden beauty.

- Jennifer Dunbar Dorn

In Book of God, Chicago poet Terry Jacobus presents a collection of poetry for the ages. Featuring a wide spectrum of ideas and insights on the existence and presence of God, Jacobus explores spirituality in a way that feels accessible and entertaining. At times serious, and at times whimsical, his poems take on a life of their own as readers are left to contemplate their own connection to a higher power.
