A Jewish Anthology

This group of poems shows the individual personalities of characters in the Bible. They are not meant as theological statements, nor are they intended to be historical claims. They are my own imagined thoughts, if I could allow these men and women to speak from the dead. I hope you find a fresh approach here to people who may otherwise have seemed flat to you. And, if their lives intrigue you, perhaps you'll go search out the Bible, to find out more about them.

All poems listed here are under copyright, by the author.
