Since the publication of the bestselling Sounding the Seasons, Malcolm Guite has repeatedly been asked for more sonnets.

This collection offers a sequence of 50 sonnets that focus on many passages in the Gospels: the Beatitudes, parables and miracles, teachings on the Kingdom, and the ‘hard sayings’ - Jesus’ challenging demands with which we wrestle.

In addition this collection includes:

• A sequence of five sonnets on 'The Wilderness', exploring mysterious stories of divine encounter such as Jacob’s wrestling with the angel.
• Poetic reflections on music, hospitality and ecology.
• Seven short poems celebrating the days of creation.
• A biblical index pairing the poems with scripture readings for use in worship.
