  • From Shade To Shine

    $20.00

    This collection of poems begins in the growing darkness of November, stretches through Advent and the seasons leading to Easter and to Pentecost, and ends in the budding light of the Scottish Orkney Islands, where the canonical hours measure time over centuries and where God broods over an austere and beautiful landscape. The measurement of time passing and returning, year after year, in the rhythms of the seasons and of the liturgical year, create the pace and the song. But in the biblical voices of Magdalene, Mary, Abel, and Eve, and in the grim historical and political realities of war and suffering, one also hears lament and finds the poet’s clear-eyed gaze straight into life’s challenges. Memory is at work here, too, in personal reminiscences and in theological reflection. As one philosopher has said, “All truth is God’s truth.”

  • Blessings For The Long Night

    $18.99

    When you’re in the midst of terrible depression, the days and weeks can feel like an eternity. From the author of The Long Night comes a beautiful collection of poems and meditations for those experiencing the long night of depression. In Blessings for the Long Night, Jessica Kantrowitz’s moving poetry acknowledges the pain and relentlessness of depression and offers gentle presence and hope. This book does not promise healing or deliverance; it is not a guide to praying away the depression. Rather, through these poems, Jessica Kantrowitz, who has been where you are, hopes to sit next to you in the dark while you wait for the light to emerge. The message, repeated and built on throughout the book, is simply, “You are not alone, you are loved, and this will not last forever.”

  • Angels Everywhere : Poems

    $19.00

    “The word ‘angel’ means ‘messenger’ and the title poem of this book, ‘Angels Everywhere, ‘ presents the idea that what I often glimpse is a flicker of glancing light, as if a heavenly being is darting in and out of my viewing, allowing me entry into a realm beyond my physical, experiential world–brief revelatory messages from somewhere beyond. I’m hoping that as you read these poems, (more than once, aloud if possible) something like Wordsworth’s ‘intimations of immortality’ will enliven your own perceptions of the world as you experience it. Maybe your own fleet of angels will show up!” –Luci Shaw, from the Introduction

  • Begin With A Question

    $20.00

    Begin with a Question explores how the life of faith is a continuous voyage, launched anew each bright day of the spirit or dark night of the soul. This is a book of contemplation and motion, a journey–often in stops and starts–toward the Divine, a pilgrimage paved with prayer, praise, pause, penitence, and (of course) questions. Urgent and universal, joyful or joyless, tinged with doubt or rinsed with hope, here are honest queries that probe, lift, and lead to discovery. Begin with a Question keeps us moving, seeking, reaching, lifting us out of ourselves to something beyond. Using a variety of fixed forms and free verse, the poet examines our relationship to the one who asks, “Who do you say that I am?” A book for seekers, doubters, and believers alike, these poems bring us face to face with anguish, anger, awe, and adoration. They give us permission not to demand answers, but to follow the questions that lead to the Alpha and Omega, to the I AM that keeps us spiraling along this twisting path toward God.

  • Raising The Sparks

    $20.00

    Raising the Sparks, Jennifer Wallace’s sixth poetry collection, is inspired by the alignment of Christian and Judaic traditions. The idea of raising the sparks, tikkun olam, comes from 16th century mystical Judaism–the belief that, if people worked to “gather or raise the sparks” from the sacred vessels that shattered at the moment of creation, a repair of the world from its initial splitting would be complete. It is the duty of each one of us to raise the sparks from wherever they are imprisoned and to elevate them to holiness. Also informing this work is the Jesuit idea of finding God in all things and conversing (without clerical intervention) directly with Jesus. The poems in this collection engage with these theological traditions by witnessing the human joys and challenges of attending to their mandates.

  • Cornered By The Dark

    $19.00

    W. H. Auden, Jorge Luis Borges, Howard Thurman, Julia Equivel, Thomas Merton, Langston Hughes, Pedro Pietri and Miguel Piñero, in their work make a connection between poetry, social criticism and the meaning of life together-that is a part of Recinos’ own literary labor. His work creates a fusion between the personal and the public in verse that is searching, expansive and walking hurt streets. Cornered by the Dark is a work about truth-telling and witness-bearing to the marginal men, women and children who tell their story about a culture of indifference and callousness while finding courage and compassion to hope in everyday life. He uses the language of poetry in this collection to awaken the conscience to the world of social inequality, racism, xenophobia, poverty, and the pulse of existence in contexts beyond the dominant gaze of society.

    Cornered by the Dark encourages readers to use their imagination to live into invisible communities and to pause in the places of difficult knowing where the voiceless speak. The unique contributions of this collection of poetry will be aided by Recinos’ lived experience that empowers it: His life story began in the South Bronx. A tough place. A tormented place. His destitute Puerto Rican mother and Guatemalan father came to the United States motivated by their desperate flight from a life of misery and despair. They never lived the American Dream; instead, they remained economically marginal and cultural strangers in America. Sadly, their desperate conditions of life caused them to abandon Recinos to live on the streets. On the streets, he discovered a world of extreme poverty and drugs, until four years later when he was taken in by a White Presbyterian minister and his family. With this family, he began a drug-free life, went to the College of Wooster, and eventually earned a Ph.D. in cultural anthropology with honors from The American University in Washington, D.C. Recinos’ existential reality informs his poetic gaze.

  • Glory In The Margins

    $22.00

    A study of scripture reveals that Jesus spent a lot of time with people in the margins. As an African American, Nikki Grimes lives in the margins, and she can tell you that it’s a place most of us would rather not be. And yet, she knows there is always glory to be found in the margins because of the Lord’s presence in, and with us.

    As Poet Laureate of Grace Brethren Church in Southern California, it’s Ms. Grimes’ job to distill the heart of the weekly sermon into a poem. She dives into each week’s chosen scripture, viewing it from her own perspective as Black, as woman, as poet, always a little left of center, and looking for the glory to be found in the margins of life, and of the text. Of course, she says, those of us who live in the margins are not what anyone expects, and the very notion that God might speak through us, may seem a bit wild. But he does. ‘I will pour out my spirit on all flesh, ‘ said the Lord. God’s busy in the hearts of all who call on him.

  • 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.

  • Poems Of John Donne

    $13.95

    John Donne was one of the great “metaphysical poets” in Elizabethan England. His work helped establish the English tradition of poetry, and influenced everyone afterwards from Alexander Pope to T.S. Eliot. Donne lived a tumultuous life before settling down and becoming the dean of St. Paul’s cathedral. He wrote everything from love sonnets to satires and elegies, but his greatest poems are undoubtedly the holy sonnets.

    In this new edition of the complete 1633 collection of Donne’s poems, we see the work of a mature Christian poet and pastor writing about love, suffering, and our need for God.

    “Batter my heart, three-person’d God, for you
    As yet but knock, breathe, shine, and seek to mend;
    That I may rise and stand, o’erthrow me, and bend
    Your force to break, blow, burn, and make me new.” ~Holy Sonnet

  • There Is A Future

    $19.00

    Learning about the ancient Jewish tradition of midrash, a rabbinic form of textual interpretation that seeks and imagines answers to unanswerable questions, felt to Amy Bornman like a poetic invitation to re-engage with the Bible in a new way. There is a Future: A Year of Daily Midrash – an award-winner in the Paraclete Poetry Prize competition – grew from a yearlong project to read the Bible daily, and write daily midrashic poems in response to the readings-to honor the text by wondering about, and struggling with, it. By engaging particular passages of scripture across the Old and New Testaments directly, these poems imagine new dimensions of the text, and make vivid connections to the world as it is now and to the author’s own life-emerging at year’s end with new hope in a future that at times feels impossible, as the days pile on days and the text’s enduring questions continue to ring.

  • Litany Of Flights

    $20.00

    Winner of the 2020 Paraclete Poetry Prize, Litany of Flights is a luminous examination of the journey of the soul, from moments of loss to moments of incandescent transformation. These poems remind us to behold the extraordinary in the ordinary, and that the secret workings of the divine occur even through the difficult: “the painful paring of your hollow bones has made you light.” Drawing on the beauty of the natural world, the devastating effects of drought and wildfires, tender moments of daily experience, and lessons of the saints, the poet creates a landscape of light and darkness, with unexpected turns into divine presence and absence. Through a spiral of red-tailed hawks, the nest of a mourning dove, the parting of waters, and the ripeness of a persimmon, this shimmering collection invites the reader to singular and transfiguring flight.

    Litany of Flights
    (from the forthcoming collection)

    First, the winged movement, steady, forward. Scrub jays in flitting
    progress, hawks in predator glide, a ringing up, a knife-sharp slope

    down. Second, the effortless type, wind-splayed, motionless pinions
    in thermal recline, as the Psalmist says, blessings breeze his love even

    in sleep. Third, the hungry, against the gale, the destination singular
    and the sun dipping crimson. Fourth, the metallic, business or pleasure.

    Fifth, the whirring kind, all hummingbird. A picnic, apples and chocolate
    in the garden with roses, both flower and child. You miss it when it’s gone.

    Sixth, a baffling flight of stairs, winding upward, passage and yet vehicle,
    spiraling to unseen landings-hope courses in the kaleidoscopic lights.

    Seventh, soar to the sun. Eighth, melt in bitter hubris. You know the story.
    Ninth, escape. A flight out of Egypt, a path through the sea cleared by

    divine hand. The times you ran, the times you were left behind in lament.
    Tenth, only rotting in the belly of a whale tames your stubborn turn from

    Nineveh. Eleventh, flights of despair and of yearning, two sides of one
    letting go, hard-earned release back into the wild, unbound by expectation,

    featherlike. Twelfth, in a moment, caught up high by the Beloved, the one
    making all things work together, wings, body, arch, air-caught up, like the

    Shulamite bride, to regions beyond aeronautical wisdom, transported in joy.
    See, he says, the painful paring of your hollow bones has made you light.

  • Therese : Poems

    $19.00

    In this collection, poet Sarah Law presents lucid, lyrical reflections on the much-loved saint, Therese of Lisieux (1873-97), whose life and writing has been an inspiration to so many people. For Sarah Law, there is something about Therese that catches at the heart, and her poems flow from that sense of friendship and tenderness with her subject. Many of the poems meditate on events, large and small, in Therese’s brief but spiritually significant life. The first section explores her childhood, and the second, her nine precious years as a Carmelite nun; years of both sweetness and suffering. Several poems are inspired by well-known photographs of Therese, some of which are included in this volume. A final section considers Therese’s legacy, as her ‘little way’ of confidence and love became known throughout the world. Each poem may be read as an individual reflection, and as part of the larger biographical sequence.

  • Clear Light : Spiritual Reflections And Meditations

    $18.95

    As Eckhart Tolle has written, poetry “has been recognized since ancient times as a highly appropriate medium for the expression and transmission of spiritual truth.” The Clear Light is Steve Taylor’s latest contribution to this poetic tradition, offering short and powerful reflections as a guide to spiritual awakening and as experiential glimpses of the state of enlightenment itself. Taylor ranges widely, through subjects including “Making the Human Race Whole,” “Freedom from the Past,” and “The Reality of Connection,” always in clear and simple language. Best of all, he reminds us of the choices we always have when life feels chaotic and overwhelming: empathy, acceptance, and love. Soothing but also challenging, Taylor’s words continually affirm the profound bedrock of peace and even joy in the present that is always available. The book’s eponymous reflection says it best:

    There is nothing that can’t be undone —
    no past injury that can’t be healed
    no past mistake that can’t be corrected —
    in the clear light of the present.

    Reading this book is a transformational spiritual experience in itself.

  • Generosity : Poems

    $20.00

    Rejoice, readers, as you receive the generosity of Luci Shaw’s 76 new grace-infused parable poems. Autobiography once more merges with theology as these poems illuminate in splendored natural detail how the seasons of creation parallel and explain the seasons of her life as a poet. Again and again, these poems shower us with glorious epiphanies from the natural world as it reflects God’s generosity at work such as “spring’s impossible news of green.” These poems confirm that in poetry as in faith “ripeness is all.” Like Wordsworth, Luci is celebrated for being a highly gifted landscape poet whose works are rich in imagery from the physical world-meadows filled with seeds, flowers, and also poems which are like “shoots” in Luci’s writing life. Animals, too, great and small (beetles, cricket, and voles to bears and whales) play a major role in Luci’s poetics of creation; God is likened to a great bear who leaves paw tracks for us to follow. In their deep faith and vibrant colors and designs, the poems in Generosity might be considered Luci’s Book of Kells. We need to be like Luci’s father who carried her poems in his briefcase to show his friends.

  • Madonna Complex

    $12.00

    What does it mean to say yes?–to God, to the Spirit, to art, to love, to motherhood, to the dazzling & tangible world? Mary’s response to the angel, saying “Let it be to me as you have said,” is an essential moment in the life of a disciple, a woman, and an artist. In Madonna, Complex, Mary’s “yes” is a moment of opening, of allowing her very body to become a co-creator with God and a conduit for the coming of grace into the world. However, womanhood in all its fullness–sexuality, marriage, infertility, childbirth, nursing–inevitably complicates traditional Christian imagery of Mary. Madonna, Complex chronicles a feminine faith journey alongside saints like Joan of Arc and Saint Kateri, images of motherhood in visual art, through holy days of the Christian calendar–Ash Wednesday, Holy Saturday, All Saints Day–and sites of pilgrimage, cathedrals, wilderness, and other places holiness can be found. These poems explore the complexities of the messages we receive about what it means to say yes to God, or to something larger than ourselves that demands our attention and energy, whether it’s bearing a child or participating in a political protest.

  • Andalusian Hours : Poems From The Porch Of Flannery O’Connor

    $19.00

    Andalusian Hours: Poems from the Porch of Flannery O’Connor is a collection of 101 sonnets that channel the voice of celebrated fiction writer, Flannery O’Connor. In these poems, poet and scholar Angela Alaimo O’Donnell imagines the rich interior life Flannery lived during the last fourteen years of her life in rural Georgia on her family’s farm named “Andalusia.” Each poem begins with an epigraph taken from O’Connor’s essays, stories, or letters; the poet then plumbs Flannery’s thoughts and the poignant circumstances behind them, welcoming the reader into O’Connor’s private world. Together the poems tell the story of a brilliant young woman who enjoyed a bright and promising childhood, was struck with lupus just as her writing career hit its stride, and was forced to return home and live out her days in exile, far from the literary world she loved. By turns tragic and comic, the poems in Andalusian Hours explore Flannery’s loves and losses, her complex relationship with her mother, her battle with her illness and disability, and her passion for her writing. The poems mark time in keeping with the liturgical hours O’Connor herself honored in her prayer life and in her quasi-monastic devotion to her vocation and to the home she learned to love, Andalusia.

  • 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

There is a purpose in every season, and no matter how you want to race through this day or run away from this place, rest assured that you are invited to live fully–right here, right now. Light will always find you, and even when the sun sets and you sit awaiting the dawn, know you are still blooming in the way you were meant to. And in each small moment, whether in the light or the dark, you can make room for becoming, for breathing, for stumbling, and for simply being–for there is Grace, today and every day.

  • 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.

  • This Far : Poems

    $19.00

    This collection offers a rich harvest taken from one season in the poet’s creative life. Like movements in a musical composition, these poems share leitmotifs ? grief and the desire to honor those “saints” who have passed on; the sacramental power of nature; and, how works of art illuminate and console as they do. They point to the tension between the practice of monastic silence and the urge to bear witness, interrogating faith in the light of crises facing the earth and our human community. At the same time, the poet celebrates encounters that offer blessings of hope, inviting us to join her in a pilgrimage that leads us, with her, “this far,” and gestures to what lies beyond.

  • Mystery Of It All

    $25.00

    Paul Mariani has spent the past fifty years trying to write a poetry which celebrates the vibrant sacramentality of life in the twilight of Modernity. Many of those years he spent writing the lives of Williams, Berryman, Lowell, Hart Crane, Stevens, and Hopkins, the Jesuit responsible for Mariani’s becoming a poet in the first place. “It is difficult,” Williams wrote, “to get the news from poems/ yet men die miserably every day/ for lack/ of what is found there.” Still, he pleaded to be heard, which is what Mariani asks of us now, as he celebrates a poetry which speaks even more directly of what the good news is.

  • Anaphora : New Poems

    $18.00

    Anaphora-the repetition of a word or phrase-is a strategy that assists coherence, and draws attention to the repeated terms. In Eucharistic settings, it also indicates the specific liturgical moment when the bread and wine are consecrated, becoming what we in the Eastern Church are pleased to name the Holy Mysteries. Certain poems in this collection employ overt anaphora; many do not. Still, they invite a sense of words as doing more than naming, more than serving as arrows pointing to prior substance; intermittently, these words may acquire due substance of their own, partaking of more than is apparent, but is nonetheless so, and is present.

  • 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.

  • Pilgrim You Find The Path By Walking

    $19.00

    Sonnets are familiar to us, but not relevant. What do they have to do with our fast-paced, tech-driven, ever-shrinking contemporary world? But what if the sonnet–invented 700 years ago–could come back like a cat with nine lives? A sonnet in the twenty-first century might serve as a sacramental form, calling us from our work-mad lives to quietness and reflection.

    In Pilgrim, You Find the Path by Walking, Jeanne Murray Walker invites the reader to join her on a journey told in 58 colloquial sonnets, beginning in the slangy streets of New York and ending in the holiness of silence and praise. Stops on the journey include reflections on death and grief, but also praise for a migrating butterfly, a knock on the door, the astonishing ocean. This book is designed to be used as a devotional and read slowly; to be both a book of poetry and a spiritual companion.

    revelation, this
    breathing out,

  • 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.

  • Consequence Of Moonlight

    $19.00

    The act of writing poetry, for Sofia Starnes, is a “getting out of the way” so that a poem might occur, a poem that must itself become a place of resonance, where the reader might recognize a voice otherwise unheard. The Consequence of Moonlight is a poetic invitation to an awareness of an underlying Presence; it is also a call to be present as a loving witness of valuable–and vulnerable–things.

    These poems are written to be depositories for the reader’s experiences. The poem’s truth is its emotion, nothing else. Why moonlight? Because the moon has no light of its own; it lives on borrowed light, as we do. The moon is best perceived and most needed in the dark, fulfilling itself in absence. It is both here and there, as is often true for saints, whose luminosity is seen as lunacy in the world.

  • 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.

  • What Will Soon Take Place

    $19.00

    What Will Soon Take Place is an imaginative journey through the book of Revelation. It offers a poet’s view of the prophetic, not in the sense of seeking out clues to the “end times,” but a means of taking this strange, fantastic book of scripture and letting it read its way into personal lives. This is not prophecy as foretelling, but forth-telling: telling us the truths of our lives in the light of God’s light. But rather than escape into some safe, heavenly realm, the poems return to our homes and meet us in the form of our neighbors, persecuted believers, and in shopping malls with vivid, edged-up language and the authority to believe and doubt at once.

  • Almost Entirely : Poems

    $19.00

    Rooted in the grit of urban Baltimore and the forests of rural Massachusetts, these poems remind us that life’s tensions and polarities are energies we carry within ourselves. As poems of witness and commentary, conversation and meditation, they offer moments of close looking, and of looking away; of loving, and of bungled attempts to be more loving. They call us to look long and hard-and generously-at our lives. Written with radiant honesty and fierce tenderness, they suggest a path of inner discovery where mystery awaits us in the ordinary.
