Poetry has always been a central element of Christian spirituality and is used in worship, in pastoral services and guided meditation. In Sounding the Seasons, Cambridge poet and priest Malcolm Guite transforms seventy lectionary readings into lucid, inspiring poems, for use in regular worship, seasonal services, meditative reading or on retreat.

This second edition includes further sonnets for the Christian year written since the original edition, including a sequence of 19 sonnets on the resurrection appearances recorded in scripture. Immediate, striking, simple yet profound, Malcolm Guite’s poetry resonates deeply and widely across the churches of all traditions throughout the English speaking world.

Malcolm Guite

Malcolm Guite is a renowned performance poet and singer/songwriter, and Life Fellow of Girton College, Cambridge. He is in incessant demand as a speaker and lecturer and in Britain and the US.

'Malcolm Guite knows exactly how to use the sonnet form to powerful effect. These pieces have the economy and pungency of all good sonnets, and again and again, offer deep resources for prayer and meditation to the reader.' -- Rowan Williams
