Since the publication of the bestselling Sounding the Seasons, Malcolm Guite has repeatedly been asked for more sonnets. This new collection offers a sequence of new 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 seven 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.
We are sorry to say that the Biblical index was not included in the first printing of Parable and Paradox, but you can download it here.
