The New Psalmists
The greatest teacher to grace my life with his influence once told me, "Bible is like freeze dried coffee: when you look at it what you are seeing is the crystallized result of 5000 years of oral traditions being translated into text. But, when you add the water of a human mind, what you get back is an elixir to heal, awaken and stir you to the deepest parts of your soul."
This group is for those writers for whom the Bible (Hebrew, Holy and Qur'an) is a continual inspiration. For those who know, by virtue of their own experience, that the Bible's text is as much about what is on the page as it is what is behind, in front of, in-between, around and through that page. For those who can never seem to read a single Bible story the same way twice and seek understanding through their writing as a dialogue with that most ancient, irritating and inspiring of texts.
