An Impossible God is an imaginative series of dramatic reflections on the key events of the first Good Friday and Easter. It follows the traditional pattern of the Stations of the Cross and Jesus' resurrection appearances. Often told from the perspective of a biblical character, these moving poems, prayers and reflections lend themselves to seasonal worship, private reading and public performance.

Author Biography
