The Hour of Light

Poems by Amy Frykholm

Amy Frykholm’s debut book of poems is imagined as a dialogue between biblical figures Ruth and Elijah: spare, contemplative, and searching. Centered in silence, it resonates in its earthy exploration of ancient sources.

The hour of light has now come.
Bring bones, clay, mud
For the rising of the raven’s call.

Frykholm is an author, journalist, scholar and poet. A senior editor for The Christian Century, she hosts In Search Of, a podcast about searching but not always finding. Based in Leadville, Colorado, her writing explores religion, culture, and geography across genres.
