Spirited Selection of Scripture-based Poems
"Chapters Into Verse: A Selection" [CV-S] is a "brief" (517 page!) selection of poems drawn from the larger (800+ pp) two-volume "Chapters Into Verse" [CV-I & CV-II], which offers English-language poems based on the Hebrew Bible/First Christian Testament (in CV-I) and the Christian New Testament (in CV-2). The introduction to CV-S, available as a free sample on Google books "play" app, discusses the editors' rational and relationship of this project to other of their Biblical poetry efforts. At less than half the price of either of the original volumes, the e-book edition of CV-S offers an exceptional introduction to English poetry of the last few centuries.
