At the Mercy Seat explores the relentlessness of mercy as it permeates the natural world and also our relationships, openning them to mystery. Whether the poems reclaim biblical stories or the voices of McCaslin’s poetic progenitors, they are compelling and finely nuanced events leading to a contemplative being-in-the-world, in which spirit and matter, the sacred and profane, the delicate and the disturbing develop as a unified field.
