This book is a rendering in poetry of the ancient Christian practice of the Easter Vigil, held over the night between Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday. Readings from the vigil become the point of departure for poems that reflect on the reading, and then short prose ruminations that reflect on themes in the poems. The poems and ruminations are deeply informed by both the Christian story of the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus and the great tradition of Jewish and Christian mysticism about the creation and redemption of the world.
Paul K. Hooker is recently retired as Associate Dean for Ministerial Formation and Advanced Studies at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary. He is author of several books and articles in the field of biblical studies, including 1 and 2 Chronicles, and a previous collection of poems, Days and Time: Poems from the Liturgy of Living.
