I pray in poems
Meditations on Poetry and Faith
This item is a print on demand title and will be dispatched in 1-3 weeks.
I pray in poems explores the intersection of great works of poetry and faith, offering meditations on what these works illustrate about Christian living.
Readers will encounter authors as diverse as William Shakespeare, T.S. Eliot, Rumi, Mary Oliver, and Anna Kamienska. Each poem is followed by an analytical reflection that explores the work and places it within the context of one or more biblical passages.
These meditations will assist the reader in understanding and appreciating the poetry, and will also offer insightful, perhaps even inspiring, thoughts on what it means to live a life in faith. The book is designed to engage all Christians (especially those who don't think they like poetry), and to challenge anyone who thinks the arts are of little significance to religious life.
I pray in poems contains 20 meditations, organized around the liturgical seasons, and can serve as facilitation for personal devotion or as a resource for small group discussions. For individuals, gift purchase, small groups.
