Publisher's Description

As a spiritual director, theologian, teacher and chaplain, Christopher Southgate’s poetry resonates deeply with human experience and has received wide recognition. Here he collects together new and some of his most popular poems that touch on spiritual themes.

A number of commissioned poems feature in this collection, including one on the King James Bible, quoted by Rowan Williams at the 400th anniversary service in Westminster Abbey. Other poems are drawn directly from biblical narratives, or reflect on the person of Jesus.

Also included are poems focusing on places of spiritual significance: Iona, Lindisfarne, Patmos, and the site of 9/11 in Manhattan, as well as poems about suffering and grief including the popular work ‘Coming to Terms’, featured on BBC Radio 4.

Editorial Reviews

"Resonant as lark song beside a still pool, these poems reveal the truth of being that is porous to the Holy. People, places and situations come alive through Southgate’s masterful, sometimes playful and always reverent evocations. Faith and love, fierce and fragile, shimmer and sing."
"From closely observed and sensitive responses to sacred spaces, to informed and imaginative engagement with scripture, from poised meditation on art and music, to poignant reflection on suffering and endurance, Christopher Southgate's poetry takes us deep into our shared experiences of struggle and joy, patience and prayer, and leaves us all the richer for it."
