Publisher: Paraclete Press
ISBN: 9781557255037
Published: 01/11/2006
In this provocative collection, rich with expression and dense with meaning, Scott Cairns expresses an immediate, incarnate theology of God's power and presence in the world. Spanning thirty years and including selections from four of his previous collections, Compass of Affection illuminates the poet's longstanding engagement with language as revelation, and with poetry as way of discovery. For those who already admire the poetry of Scott Cairns and for those who have yet to be introduced, this essential volume presents the best of his work - the holy made tangible, love made flesh, and theology performed rather than discussed.

Scott Cairns

Scott Cairns is the author of five previous collections of poetry: The Theology of Doubt, The Translation of Babel, Figures for the Ghost, Recovered Body, and Philokalia. He is currently Professor of English and Director of Creative Writing at the University of Missouri. His spiritual memoir, A Short Trip to the Edge, will be published in 2007.
