A timeless, little-known literary classic to engage a new generation of readers
As the Black Death ravaged London in 1608, in the midst of societal chaos and tragedy, playwright Thomas Dekker wrote Four Birds of Noahs Ark, a book containing fifty-six prayers for the people of London and all of England.
The prayers in this book bear witness to Dekkers deep faith with a power and poignancy that few written prayers in English literature achieve. Bringing Dekkers devotional classic back into print for the first time since 1924, editor Robert Hudson has annotated the prayers and modernized their language without sacrificing their enchanting beauty and simplicity. Hudsons substantive and illuminating introduction is a gem in itself.
