Island of the Innocent: A Consideration of the Book of Job by Diane Glancey

My review of Diane Glancy’s new book is in the current issue of The Christian Century

Glancy’s book fills gaps of understanding and probes instances of suffering in a creative composition that keeps readers rocking forward in anticipation of another interpolation or surprising insight. Researched facts, explanations of the author’s literary intentions, and presuppositions of her mind are set between her poems. These bridges of language lead back and forth across time and space, turning in and out through the poet’s biography.
