Editorial Reviews

Review

[M]asterfully crafted, and totally engaging. . . . McDonnell is a genius at inserting some of the latest contemporary idioms and realities into biblical scenes—a maneuver that brings the reader’s attention to ‘an upright position,’ squashing any patronizing attitude one may be harboring with regard to the poet’s age and environment. . . . [H]e retains his tremendously refreshing sense of humor, his ability to poke fun at himself, the twinkle in his eye, and his delightful obstreperous verve.
Corpus Reports


Swift Lord, You Are Not provides us with meaning and inspiration, enjoyment and refinement of the heart. It deserves at least two if not three readings.
Deacon Digest


His is a voice worth listening to. I want to hear more.
American Benedictine Review


McDonnell has started late at poetry, but he should keep going. Why stop now?
American Benedictine Review

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have really enjoyed this book, it takes familiar Bible stories and stories of the Saints and reflects on what the character might be thinking. I would recommend it to anyone who loves poetry and has imagination.
