Prayers from the Land of the Living

Poetically-Written Narratives Inspired by the Scriptures That Will Draw Christians Towards the Light of His Words

...She brought forth her first-born son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in the manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.”
— Luke 2:6-7

TUCSON, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES, March 4, 2022 / -- Carol Handy’s new book Prayers from the Land of the Living is an influential
anthology filled with pieces that share words and rhyme from Biblical passages for Christians to
ponder on and understand the power of His grace. These narrative poems examine five seminal
moments in the life of Christ and the effect they produced on both those who saw Him for who He
was, as well as on those who saw only a human event. The prayers imagined here present a picture
of the human condition without faith and resolve with the acceptance of resurrection. While the
work has been popular read-aloud for such events as the Lenten program series, they also are a
moving incentive to private mediation.

“For the faith-minded reader, each of the stories represented in this volume of poetry already bears
tremendous spiritual weight as they focus on some of the most crucial moments in the life of Jesus.
Adding a human element, telling them through the eyes and mouths of those who witnessed and
were present in those moments, gives so much more gravity to these stories...Indeed, for some,
reading these poems may lead to revisiting the scripture, the poetry references or perhaps spark
the reading of it for the first time.” — Michael Radon, US Review of Books.
