The Stranger: Meditations on the Christ


Add to Wishlist

Palpant's second volume of poetry is a riff off of T.S. Eliot's character in Choruses From "The Rock," the one who knows how to ask questions. In The Stranger, Palpant attempts to answer the most troubling of all questions, "Where has God gone?" 

These poems offer ancient answers in a uniquely personal and contemporary way, exploring God's divine intrusion into our world in the person of Jesus Christ and his subsequent disruption of our existence. This book is one man's attempt to rise and meet the Stranger. Poetry that points our hearts and minds back to Jesus-sometimes humorously, sometimes fiercely, but always hopefully.
