"A powerful poetic reckoning with motherhood and religion." -Kirkus Reviews"Poignant. Provocative. Downright hilarious. Heather Lanier is an incendiary psalmist and we love her for it." --Kate Bowler, New York Times bestselling author of Everything Happens for a Reason: And Other Lies I've Loved and Duke University professor How do we reconcile our love with our grief? Seek peace in a violent world? Find compassion for our rightwing neighbors? Psalms of Unknowing challenges the patriarchy with an eye on contemporary issues such as gun violence, household divisions of labor, and parenting in an uncertain world.
