‘One of our greatest Christian intellectuals’ Rowan Williams
From Yehuda Amichai and W. H. Auden to Phyllis Wheatley and Walt Whitman… Hearing God in Poetry invites you to take a closer look at fifty great poems by some of the finest poets in the English language. Some are well known, some deserve to be better known, but all say something distinctive that will lift your spirit.
There are six poems for every week in Lent, leading up to Holy Week, with ten poems specially chosen for Easter. A short reflection from Richard Harries accompanies each poet and the poem, drawing out spiritual insights for you to reflect on throughout the day.
Hearing God in Poetry is a book full of riches that you will want to turn to time and time again – whether during Lent or in any other season of the year.
