Lorri Neilsen Glenn (b. 1947, Winnipeg), Halifax's poet laureate from 2005 to 2009, was living in Halifax, Nova Scotia at the time of publication.

"What do we lose - what should we keep? In this new collection, acclaimed poet Lorri Neilsen Glenn, former poet laureate of Halifax, explores long-held questions about spirituality and place. What are the songs that keep us here? How do we move gracefully in perpetual uncertainty? Central is the poetic sequence 'Songs for Simone' --a troubled conversation between the poet and French mystical philosopher Simone Weil. These are poems of great loss and restless questioning, wring beauty out of potential despair. Lost Gospels confirms Neilsen Glenn as a poet of maturity, depth and power." - from the rear.
