Songs for Ascent: The Audiobook presents a collection of contemporary, free-form devotional poems written in the spirit of a prodigal psalmist retracing his steps back home to beg for forgiveness. The topics of these poems touch on hurt, wandering, longing, doubting, losing, hating, betraying, forgiving, restoring, amending, loving, growing, and hoping. This collection will serve readers as a devotional accompaniment. It may also serve as a guide to those seeking to develop a repertoire of personal prayers that balance insufficiency and humble optimism. These poems search for the promised beauty hidden in episodes of deep, personal anguish.
This sample provides a generous offering of eleven of forty tracks. The complete audiobook is scheduled to release in March 2014. Visit BandCamp (http://daveyrjones.bandcamp.com) to listen to and purchase the entire album.
