Written in a modern and experimental style, this poetry compilation by Sofia M. Starnes contemplates the aesthetics of faith. Often drawing from Bible stories, this collection indirectly alludes to Christian themes and creates extended metaphors that spill from one poem to another. Filled with passionately physical imagery, this is Starnes's quest for spiritual union with the Trinity.
