About the Book

I think of fathers.
I think of children.
I think of us.
I taste, and I weep, and I laugh.
The Old Testament contains hundreds of scriptures, words, and images that are woven into the passages of the Gospels in the New Testament. Psalm 34:8 invites us to “taste and see” the goodness of God, especially in times of both joy and loss, while Matthew 5:13-16 invites the followers of Jesus to be salt and light in the world.
In this second collection of essays and poems, David Bowen invites us to taste that same goodness as we receive and give love and mercy to others. He once again presents a Bible scripture, illustrated with a story or poem to enhance the flavors that the Holy Spirit brings to our relationships. His anecdotes touch on a variety of topics such as the awesomeness of fatherhood, the biblical ignorance and misunderstanding of a pastor’s kid turned preacher, the unexpected wisdom gathered from a family fishing trip, and much more.
Untrampled Salt shares stories and poetry that lean on biblical inspiration to reflect on a retired pastor’s experiences and lessons in life.
