When Angels Are Born
“Ron Starbuck is poet who has taken to heart and soul the teaching in Psalm 46, ‘Be still and know that I am God.’ Spoken in the voice of a deep listener, who seeks to embrace all souls in the Mystery of God’s Love, who seeks to heal the breach. These poems are ecumenical both in that they are unifying and in the etymological root of the word, which is derived from the Greek word for house. Here is poetry that beautifully and prayerfully makes of the world a home where all of us may dwell.”
~ Aliki Barnstone, University of Missouri
“Ron Starbuck has written a work of extraordinary vision and prophecy; this is a book of both profound reverence and a song of contemporary liturgy. It is a masterpiece that will transform the belief and devotion of all who experience these lines, either verbally or literally. Without doubt, this is a great work for the new Twenty-First Century.”
