The Slumbering Host
These thirty-three poems that cast light into the darkness and promise to wake readers from their spiritual apathy, selected by Clinton Collister and Daniel Rattelle, reflect on the permanent things that make life worth living. Shouldn’t poetry invite us into a tradition that unites us with the living, the dead, and the unborn? Shouldn’t poetry move us with music, meaning and story? Ranging from James Matthew Wilson and Marly Youmans to David Middleton and Sally Thomas, these poets tell us about woodworkers and priests, hermits and students, gardeners and clerks who sojourn in a world charged with the grandeur of God.
