Abstract:

"A heart-felt, plain-spoken distillation in poetry of Henderson's lifelong struggle to maintain his faith. The Family Bible is Henderson's first collection of poetry and a rare statement of this pilgrim's journey. His 67 poems are both personal and universal. They are funny, bitter, eloquent, tortured, touching, wise, blasphemous, and reverent. From Genesis to Revelation, this is the Bible that we all recognize and debate and love."--Provided by publisher.
