In the tumultuous spirit of the American South, A Carolina Psalter offers an outspoken conversation with King David’s Psalms, great outcries to a personal God. The poems in A Carolina Psalter address the God of the Psalms with questioning, irreverence, and occasional confrontation as we move into new understandings of Spirit. His poems, although reflecting current thought and practice concerning the omnipresence of Spirit, spring from a well-founded history of believers, indeed, from the Bible itself, acknowledging the divine presence within. They assert the authority of the individual voice in a search for a God beyond accepted boundaries and definitions.
In a brilliant creative life, Tony Scully has been a Broadway playwright, a Jesuit, and mayor of a Southern city. A graduate of Boston College and the Yale School of Drama, he served as a deacon for the Reverend William Sloane Coffin. At the Woodstock Center for Religion and Worship he pursued liturgical reform. In Hollywood he was a writer/consultant. He has taught painting, worked in street theatre, and these days seeks to nurture the individual voice.
