A delightful read!
Kenn Allan refers to his work as "Poetry for Non-Poetry Lovers." I fit that description, and can attest. I read 'The Gospel from the Beginning' for its subject, not for lyric or rhyme. But I admit, I found his artistry engaging. Stories that are very familiar to us--the Exodus, the birth narrative of Jesus, the Last Supper, for instance--all came to life with the poet's charm. I believe this would be a wonderful book for a parent or grandparent to share with a child.
As a pastor for twenty years, I've taught on all the stories Allan covers in 'The Gospel from the Beginning' many times over. As I read this book, I found his handling of those stories thought provoking and fun.
Download it. You'll enjoy--poetry lover or not.
