Sounding the Seasons : Seventy sonnets for Christian year, Paperback / softback Book

Sounding the Seasons : Seventy sonnets for Christian year Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Poetry has always been a central element of Christian spirituality and is increasingly used in worship, in pastoral services and guided meditation.

In Sounding the Seasons, Cambridge poet, priest and singer-songwriter Malcolm Guite transforms seventy lectionary readings into lucid, inspiring poems, for use in regular worship, seasonal services, meditative reading or on retreat. Already widely recognised, Malcolm's writing has been acclaimed by Rowan Williams and Luci Shaw, two leading contemporary religious poets. Seven Advent poems from this collection will appear in the next edition of Penguin's (US) Best Spiritual Writing edited by Philip Zaleski, alongside the work of writers such as Seamus Heaney and Annie Dillard. A section of practical help and advice for using poetry creatively and effectively in worship is also included.
