  • God Speaks Through Wombs

    $16.00

    birthing prophetic utterances. . . . Enough of this unbelieving religion that masquerades as faith. Divine favor is placed on what we have disgraced.

    In God Speaks Through Wombs, Drew Jackson explores the first eight chapters of Luke’s Gospel in a new poetic register. These are declarative poems, faithfully proclaiming the gospel story in all its liberative power. Here the gospel is the fresh words / that speak of / things impossible. From the Magnificat (That girl can sing! . . . She has a voice / That can shatter shackles) to the baptism of Christ (I stepped in / Committing insurrection), this collection helps us hear the hum of deliverance–against all hope–that’s been in the gospel all along.

  • Ninos : Poems For The Lost Children Of Chile

    $18.99

    On September 11, 1973, a military coup plunged Chile into seventeen long years of dictatorial rule. Only the return of democracy could reveal the full horrors of Augusto Pinochet’s regime: 3,197 people dead or disappeared-including thirty-four children under the age of fourteen.

    This book is a stirring memorial to those victims and to the cost of extremism. Thirty-four poems-one for each child lost-consider the diverse hopes of these fragile young lives. From Alicia to Jaime, Hector to Paola, Soledad to Rafael, they were brave and creative, thoughtful and strong. In these pages, some children watch for the changing seasons. Some listen for new sounds on rainy afternoons. And some can’t wait for their next birthday.

    Featuring gentle, emotive poems and soft, pastel-toned illustrations, Nios is an unforgettable tribute to the children of Pinochet’s Chile and all those threatened by political violence across the world.

  • Probing Eyes : Poems Of A Lifetime, 1959-2019

    $12.99

    Probing Eyes is a collection of 156 poems written over a period of 60 years by a Christian professor of English literature. The first and largest section is called Scriptural Extensions, and it seeks to throw fresh light on various Scriptural situations by either projecting the personality of a character though a dramatic monologue or offering a fresh slant on the events depicted. These poems proceed from asking the question, I wonder what this biblical character was thinking in the midst of these events. The second section, Interactions, presents some of the author’s experiences in interfacing with others, from family and friends to people only casually known. The third section, Perspectives on Time, consists of poems written mostly as New Year’s meditations, dealing with how we as Christians are affected by the passage of time; while the inexorable flow of time reminds of our finiteness and mortality, it also challenges us to understand how God, Who is timeless, is master of our limitations. The final section, Personal and Meditative, is a miscellanea of personal and occasional ruminations, some serious and others playful. The book has four indexes to facilitate finding a poem by title, chronological placement, Scriptural reference, or topic. The author hopes that these poems will thus lend themselves to use for private Bible study and sermon or worship application. The most fruitful reading of the poems, especially of those for which a Scriptural reference is given, will come from a careful look at the relevant biblical texts.

    This book is not presented as the work of a main-stream poet, for Prof. Higgs has pursued his poetry writing as an avocation, not a profession. He has opted for clarity over artistic sophistication, which may not commend him to contemporary critics and practitioners of poetic composition. At the same time, the author aspires to go beyond the kind of religious versification whose primary purpose is to convey a moral lesson through rhyming lines. That is not an ignoble objective, but it does not embrace a full participation in the linguistic complexity that characterizes serious poetry. Dr. Higgs seeks in his poems to combine the beauty of art with the beauty of Truth, and thereby to stimulate fresh attention to who God is and how He works with the people of His creation.

    The style of Probing Eyes is mainly free verse, but with regular use of internal rhyme, assonance, and alliteration. The reader may see reflected i

  • My Sour Sweet Days

    $20.99

    George Herbert is one of the great 17th century poet-priests. His poems embrace every shade of the spiritual life, from love and closeness, to anger and despair, to reconciliation and hope. And his work is always rich with audacious playfulness: he seems to take God on, knowing God will win, as if he’s having an argument with a faithful friend he knows is not going to leave. In much of theology and spirituality, God is a critical spectator to human lives, but for Herbert, his sense of relationship with God is primarily of a friendship that can never be broken. These are some of the themes Mark Oakley explores in this outstanding book. He offers a poem for every day in Lent, with a two-page commentary on each of the forty included.

  • Sound Of Many Waters

    $23.99

    Our beliefs determine how we behave personally, and also our lawful standards as well. Misplaced faith and worship has led many far from truth. God is not tolerant toward sin or the rejection of truth. His ways are not our ways, and wisdom and salvation only come through His way. Christ is the fulfilment of God’s love for us and His word which is the guide.

    God has made Himself known to all through nature, His written word, and in the person of Christ. Our understanding and acceptance of God will determine our lives as individuals and as a society more than any other beliefs. God has set the standard for love and moral living, and when we honor Him, we will become what’s needed by our fellow man. Wisdom and truth are God’s, and all substitutes will not stand. Only in God should we trust.

  • Love Set You Going

    $27.99

    ‘Love set you going’. The opening words of Sylvia Plath’s poem for her newborn daughter are true of each one of us. Love is fundamental to our being, our growth, our development and our happiness. Love enables us to make meaning of our lives in the world, and it gives us hope for what lies beyond. It is completely humdrum and ordinary – yet mysterious beyond words. Beginning in the body, it points us to eternity. Life offers, and asks of us, many different kinds of love, and poets have reflected on this truth with insight and acute observation. As Janet Morley explores love ‘up and down the generations’, ‘grown up love’ and love between ‘God and the human heart’, she reveals what our hearts eventually discern – love has its seasons and ambiguities, its certainties and passions. Love is never simple at all.

  • Mystical Prayer : The Poetic Example Of Emily Dickinson

    $15.95

    In this book, Charles Murphy explores the still unfolding rediscovery of Emily Dickinson (1830-1886), our foremost American poet, as a mystic of profound depth and ambition. She declined publication of almost all of her hundreds of poems during her lifetime, describing them as a record of her wrestling with God, who, in the Puritan religious tradition she received, she found cold and remote. Murphy places Dickinson’s writings within the Christian mystical tradition exemplified by St. Teresa of Avila and identifies her poems as expressions of what he terms theologically as believing unbelief. Dickinson’s experiences of love and her confrontation with human mortality drove her poetic insights and led to her discovery of God in the beauty and mystery of the natural world.

  • When Poets Pray

    $19.99

    Two dozen select prayer poems to learn from and live withPoetry and prayer are closely related. We often look to poets to give language to our deepest hopes, fears, losses-and prayers. Poets slow us down. They teach us to stop and go in before we go on. They play at the edges of mystery, holding a tension between line and sentence, between sense and reason, between the transcendent and the deeply, comfortingly familiar. When Poets Pray contains thoughtful meditations by Marilyn McEntyre on choice poems/prayers and poems about prayer. Her beautifully written reflections are contemplative exercises, not scholarly analyses, meant more as invitation than instruction. Here McEntyre shares gifts that she herself has received from poets who pray, or who reflect on prayer, believing that they have other gifts to offer readers seeking spiritual companionship along our pilgrim way.

In exploring the work of various poets, David Lyle Jeffrey demonstrates how the poetry of the Bible affords a register of understanding in which the beauty of Holy Scripture deepens meditation on its truth, and is indeed a vital part of that truth.

  • Reaching Forever : Poems

    $37.00

    Reaching Forever is Philip C. Kolin’s ninth collection of poems, the sixth to focus entirely on spiritual poetry. Like the poet’s most recent book, Benedict’s Daughter: Poems (2017), the poems in this new collection are anchored in Scripture.

    Organized according to major Christian topics-sheep, water, God’s names, eschatology-Reaching Forever is ripe with scriptural parables, symbols and imagery, settings, allusions, and speakers ranging from God to biblical characters to contemporary figures. Consistent with the Poiema Series, these poems open the windows of faith. But they are not simple catechesis. Rather, they leap over the sills, to quote D. S. Martin, providing new ways of looking at Holy Writ and applying them to today’s world-to see the sacred in the daily.

    Undeniably the most distinctive feature of Reaching Forever is the large number of poems set in the contemporary world, but contextualized through the Bible. For instance, a poem on the polyandrous Samaritan woman is paired with one about a homeless woman in a large city who also has had many husbands and children. A long litany poem about God’s appearances in Scripture is followed by one on catadores (garbage pickers) who hear rumbling below the filth and wonder what God’s voice is saying. A short poem on the riches of Cana seques to a spiritual lyric about monks who transform donors’ pennies into bread for the poor.

  • Silver Pen : Sound And Silence

    $13.99

    This author uses words as a sculptor uses clay. She doesnt change the shape of the word; its the surrounding words that contain the poetic surprise. She explains that she personally likes to be surprised by a word that doesnt usually follow another. It is a way to startle the reader into looking deeper into the thought. There are times when words can even pour forth like oil and fill in cracks left by others hurtful words. Some of these poetic frames become like a waterfall of individual poems that wash off aching bodies and refreshes the spirit. Then poems of peace pour forth into an exchanged life. This poetic journey leads the reader through a number of chapters: Sound and Silence, Struggles, Depths of Despair, and ultimately, to the chapter on the importance of lifting up your eyes to the One who can bring you into peace and hope and the exchanged life. The author sees this journey as a metamorphosis and demonstrates this in several poems where in the days of trouble, it feels like a tsunami. One is drawn into those last chapters for the comfort of His peace and hope.

  • Silver Pen : Sound And Silence

    $26.99

    This author uses words as a sculptor uses clay. She doesnt change the shape of the word; its the surrounding words that contain the poetic surprise. She explains that she personally likes to be surprised by a word that doesnt usually follow another. It is a way to startle the reader into looking deeper into the thought. There are times when words can even pour forth like oil and fill in cracks left by others hurtful words. Some of these poetic frames become like a waterfall of individual poems that wash off aching bodies and refreshes the spirit. Then poems of peace pour forth into an exchanged life. This poetic journey leads the reader through a number of chapters: Sound and Silence, Struggles, Depths of Despair, and ultimately, to the chapter on the importance of lifting up your eyes to the One who can bring you into peace and hope and the exchanged life.

  • Full Worm Moon

    $37.00

    Like The Old Farmer’s Almanac chronicles the cycles of sun, moon, stars, and planets, Full Worm Moon explores the profound transitions from promise to loss, depicting one woman’s endeavor to move into a third space / hospitable for another life / more rare, more raw. In particular, Julie L. Moore tracks the phases of a long marriage’s brutal disintegration, a year as turbulent as the wind that uproots a birch tree, leaving it prostrate on the ground / like one spouse pleading / with the other not to leave. Every month’s full moon weaves through seasons of vicissitude, creating a new vocabulary for solitude without loneliness and endurance without passivity. As they delve into divorce’s myriad aftershocks, Moore’s poems remain intelligent and intimate; amid their stunning landscapes emerge both beauty and violence as well as a host of memorable characters: Milton and Monet, Charon and Cicero, Benedictine monks and Cooper’s Hawks, clueless administrators and clever students, an oblivious weatherman and a philosophical neighbor. All are welcome, and in her lyrical, trustworthy voice, Moore guides us, with our longing / for answered prayer, to press on and practice . . . / anything but resignation.

  • Poems From God

    $9.99

    More than sixty years ago, God gave Eleanor Vinton a dream to write and publish a book of poems. Through the years several attempts were made to do that. All her efforts failed, despite the fact that He continued to give her poems. During the twenty-five years she walked away from Him, God continued to give her poems. Eleanor felt that God wanted these included in this book for others to identify with so that they, too, may enter His healing and find the abundant life of His magnificent love, joy and peace. In the fall of 2016, Eleanor felt that God was saying, Now is the time to publish the poems I have given you. Even now, God is saying to the people that it is the time to plunge into His presence and sing the song of A Soul Set Free.

  • Water At The Roots

    $16.00

    In a society uprooted by war, industrialization, hate-filled ideology, and dehumanizing technology, a revolutionary farmer-poet reconnects his people to the land and one another.
    Something of a British Wendell Berry, Philip Britts (1917-1949) was a soft-spoken West Country farmer, poet, activist, and mystic. Even as his country plunged headlong into a second world war, he sought a way of life where people could work together in harmony with nature and one another. He found an answer, though it would cost him his land and his life.
    These were years of turbulence and disillusionment, in Europe and beyond. Why had progress brought with it so much suffering? Britts saw that in losing our connection to nature and the earth, we are losing our humanity – our connection to one another. He watched as his friends in the peace movement, socialist circles, and Christian churches joined the battle against Hitler, but he refused to resort to violence. Instead he threw himself into an attempt to live out the radical demands of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount on a personal and local level in community.

    Britts’s story is no romantic agrarian elegy, but a life lived in the thick of history. The international pacifist community he joined, the Bruderhof, was soon forced to flee Europe. Now the earth he tilled was no longer the moist soil of his homeland, but a harsh tropical climate of drought, locusts, and blight. A highly trained horticulturalist, he loved working the land and discovering new wonders of nature, to see in growing corn the fingerprints of God. And his expertise and research helped alleviate hunger in Paraguay and Brazil. But now the soil was also shoveled over babies’ graves, and soon Britts himself contracted a rare tropical disease that would take his life at the age of thirty-one, leaving behind a wife and three young children.

    Philip Britts’s generation faced great dangers and upheavals, as does ours. His response – to root himself in God, to dedicate himself to a community, to restore the land he farmed, and to use his gift with words to turn people from their madness – speaks into our age just as forcefully. The life he chose, as well as his poetry, remain a prophetic challenge in a time still wracked by war, racism, nationalism, materialism, and ecological devastation. Britts’s insights into our relationship with the natural environment are particularly poignant now that we are even more aware of its fragility.

  • Habitation Of Wonder

    $36.00

    Habitation of Wonder is an offering of poems that travels the intersection of the natural landscape and the landscape of spirit. Here, the moon is a white comma / in the breath of space. Crocuses are ephemeral prophets, first of the sun’s spring projects. The ocean is a vast / perpetual sacrifice on the altar / of the shell-glittering shore. The collection opens with Genesis, a reimagining of the creation story with song as the divine instrument of creation. Five themed sections flow from Genesis like a musical thread, investigating the material elements from which we originate and in which we take shelter, as well as the gifts of language and faith, which make us more than merely a constellation of salts. In its own way, each poem invites the reader to tenant beauty–as well as to tenant uncertainty. When beauty and uncertainty collide, they spark wonder. As these poems suggest, wonder is simply another name for the world in which we live–and the world that lives in us.
