"Inspired and inspiring, former pastor Terry Minchow-Proffitt's "Seven Last Words" is exceptional and highly recommended reading for all members of the Christian community regardless of denominational affiliation." --Midwest Book Review
From the Author
These seven poems rose organically from a Lenten class I taught on Christ's crucifixion at Dayspring Baptist Church. My hope for the class, and also for these poems, involves the need to enter into the meaning of these "last words" experientially. This book is not "about" the crucifixion, but an attempt to lean into the meaning of these words at a visceral level, to experience more fully the suffering love portrayed there.

The concluding author's interview is riveting and insightful. I could hear Terry responding and smiling, humbly, but knowing he just dropped serious wisdom. I find poets and people who interview poets to be my favorite interviewers/ees. They understand which questions to ask to gain the depth of the authors.
“From the garden to the tree we’re all rigged for reprieve” and “The one word that death cannot bear and fear cannot shake: Consummation”
These are two of the best lines I've read in ages and I’m not just saying that because I love Terry.
