New Review of Meditations on Divine Names in the Polish Review

Prof. Grazyna Kozaczka, specialist in Polish American literature, has reviewed "Meditations for Divine Names" for The Polish Review (vol. 58 no. 4, 2013).

She writes: "Meditations on Divine Names" ...  offers rich poetic material selected and collected with great sensitivity, by an editor for whom religious belief was not a given, but rather the result of conscious search.  Its 140 poems by sixty-four authors represent a variety of religious faiths.  The title of this anthology points to some crucial concepts.  In several world mythologies, the act of naming, the act that involves language, takes on the power of creation. One can certainly find parallels here with poetic acts of creation. Likewise, many of the poems chosen by Trochimczyk represent thoughtful meditations, prayers or thoughtful incantations that allow the reader a total immersion in the spiritual and move the reader to the emotional response to, and relationship with, the divine.” (p.  109). 

The book is available from international booksellers, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other distributors:

Meditations on Divine Names, ed. Maja Trochimczyk, 2012.
