Endorsements for David’s Work
“A poet for these times, David Tensen articulates deeply the spectrum of my own personal thoughts, emotions, losses and issues. These words whisper transcendent rumors hidden in the viscera of humanity, lyrics of longing to be gratefully shared.”
Wm. Paul Young – Author of The Shack
“David Tensen is a unique individual and a deep thinker whose words, flowing from his own experience penetrate deeply, causing one to stop, listen and reflect and to have conversations with God and with others. His words both uncover pain and bring healing, and at the same time, enable us to move one step forward or further on our journey.”
James Condon – Commissioner Emeritus, Salvation Army, Australia
“Both the Jewish and Christian traditions have forever prayed their deepest heart-cries as poetry and their prophets offered us words when we only had groans. This is how I experience David Tensen. He’s given us a prophetic Psalter apropos for these swirling times–a warm fire and bright light.”
Bradley Jersak – Author of A More Christlike God
David is currently accepting personal and commercial poetry writing requests.
