A Thousand VesselsPoet Jeanne Murray Walker says The two worlds are so wonderfully imagined and entwined that I found myself turning the pages of A Thousand Vessels as compulsively as if it were fictio. I'm so glad I went into this book blindly The cover art looks like something I wouldn't conventionally pick up and as a stern atheist poems with biblical themes don't often peak my interest But Runyan's collection transcends category These poems offer new perspectives on well known biblical encounters adds depth to everyday modern concerns and presents a whole new view on human emotion
