5.0 out of 5 stars A classic, 17 Dec 2012
This review is from: Sounding the Seasons: Poetry for the Christian Year (Paperback)
The heart of the book is the 'Stations of the Cross' sequence, where Guite's poetic and theological gifts come together most perfectly and movingly. I predict that this section of the work will become a regular feature of Good Friday liturgies in churches round the world and in due course come to be regarded as a classic. It's quite brilliant. The rest of the sequence has less intensity, but is still full of great things. The poetic register, while remaining deeply suggestive, is always accessible, and the doctrinal presuppositions are very much in the Lewisian 'Mere Christianity' tradition, meaning that almost all Christians should find that they are able to gain spiritual nourishment from what is on offer. In addition to the poetry itself, the volume is richly furnished with supporting apparatus, including an excellent introductory essay, two helpful appendices, a couple of user-friendly indexes, et cetera. All told, a gem.
