Editorial Reviews

“Skepticism is mitigated by Karr’s humor, her mildly ironic stance and he capacity for wry self-examination. Theology takes on a kind of earthy insight.... As Karr knows, her endeavor is ages old. It may be that all lyric poetry aspires to prayer. What gives Sinners Welcome its sharp edge is the poet’s eloquently passionate struggle at the junction of doubt and devotion.”
