Poetry. "David Jaffin is a poet with his own particular manner of sensibility and with a method of construction issuing from his idiosyncratic preferences for manner of expression. This rightly implies that he is serious, inventive, and independent, a poet given to quality and genuineness...Most of his poems hang with charming mystery at that line between realization and 'the not yet arisen.' The realization itself is at the moment of clarity and the turning into the unexpected sense of it--like a near silent and enlightening epiphany with poetic surprise in the realm of intuition"--Neil A. Chassman in Pulse. David Jaffin is also the author of THROUGH LOST SILENCES, A VOICED AWAKENING, and THESE TIME-SHIFTING THOUGHTS.
Dr. David Jaffin was born to a Jewish family in New York and studied History, Art History and Psychology at New York University, where he was awarded a Ph.D. At the age of 24 he went to Europe and did the unthinkable: a mere 16 years after Auschwitz he married a German woman, became a Christian, and embarked on the study of theology. After graduating from Tübingen University, he became a Pastor in the Evangelical (i.e. Lutheran) Church, and then served as a minister for 20 years in Württemberg. After this he was granted freelance status in order to continue with his writing. He had already made himself a considerable reputation as a writer of sermons and religious texts, and he is now the author of dozens of prose books in German, including stories for children, as well as a large corpus of poetry in English.
