The Heart of Things : An Anthology of Memory and Lament, Hardback Book

The Heart of Things : An Anthology of Memory and Lament Hardback

Hardback

Description

Richard Holloway is one of our most beloved public thinkers.

As Bishop of Edinburgh and Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church he put principle over Church policy to advocate for gay rights and women in the priesthood.

He never shied away from confronting his own doubts and fears, whether questioning his own faith, or facing the inevitability of death.

Across numerous bestselling books he has been a radical voice of compassion and realism, helping us navigate the hectic modern world. Throughout his life Richard has turned to poets and writers to help answer the big questions, and for solace and guidance in the face of life's challenges.

Now in The Heart of Things he shares those poems and words which have been his own guide, offered in the hope they will help us too. Here then are some lights along life's path, with thoughts and reflections on living well, death, sadness, regret, sin, conflict and forgiveness.

All interwoven with Richard's philosophical consideration of what they have meant to him.

This is a book to turn to for inspiration, guidance and comfort.

It offers lessons from those who, in Richard's words, 'know best how to listen and teach us to listen', all united by 'the sensual appeal of words, the pain and pleasure they impart'.

It is a book to treasure.
