    1. Known as a New Formalist, Jarman sings tender verses that sound much like updated images and forms of Paul s letters to the Corinthians The prolific poet s understanding of Truth and hope for Redemption are unmistakable He combines artful excellence with good theology Jarman gifts the landscape of modern poetry with this collection An excerpt from If I Were Paul Do the impossible Restore life to those you have killed, wholeness to those you have maimed, goodness to what you have poisoned, trust [...]


    2. Not your predictable Christian poetry, i.e History is not as porous to god as I thought and the gaps grow farther apart The opening work is If I were Paul , his epistle to modern people expressing his response to human sin Consider what you were meant to be in the egg, in your parents arms, under a sky full of stars.Now imagine what I have to say when I learn of your enterprising viciousness, the discipline with which one of you turns another into a robot or a parasite or a maniac or a body stra [...]


    3. I rarely read poetry, but wanted to stretch myself a bit with this selection A couple of days after finishing the book, images are still bouncing around in my mind This is not a book to be rushed through Take the time to contemplate Jarman s choice of language The poems are filled with shifting and often startling images, but provide much to think about and to share This is very readable poetry, even for those of us who seldom venture into this genre.

    6. Jarmon touches on something here letters as poems, mostly prose poems However I was disappointed, perhaps because my expectations were too high These poems seemed overly long and unfocused, and without the pleasant and sometimes startling surprises I ve come to appreciate in the best poems I read.


    7. I appreciate the gesture toward a faithful order, which each of these letters describes But after a while, they start to sound a little monotonous, and the images slacken And in the end I wonder why these are termed Epistles Who is the supposed audience


    8. While it wasn t my cup of Brawndo, exactly, this collection of meditative prose poems will interest the spiritually minded or admirers of Jarman s earlier work Full review here bookslut poetry 2008_0
