Amber Konevalabout this book: 'Drunk Dialing the Divine' takes a journey through 22 poems to God's love through a much-maligned path- anger. What does it really say about someone's faith when they drunk-dial a friend and make a prayer request? Do we really accept Reconciliation? Is God silent or are we just stubborn? This collection is the precursor to the poet's own richy spiritual life- without this journey through anger, she wouldn't have the relationship with God that she does today.
The poems have been collected to reflect all the different facets of an angry relationship with God. Some of the poems are concerned with different kinds of prayer, some with different views of God- some are directed with gratefulness for those around the poet and some straight tirades towards God.
Though all of the poems begin in a negative space, they come towards a place of peace- while at the same time rejecting both the naively optimisitc worldview and pessimistic hatred. If you've ever struggled with your relationship with God- this collection of poetry is for you.
