Chaucer, Shakespeare, Herbert, Milton, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Blake, These great English poets are at the centre of a cultural heritage which goes along with the world-wide spread of the English language, yet they have often become the object of study rather than of pleasure. Scholarly, entertaining and often provocative, David Edwards's new book reveals their relevance to the current quest for an authentic spirituality in a mostly church-less society. Poets and God will excite the reader to rediscover and enjoy their work. DAVID L EDWARDS was described by the Tablet as 'one of the most remarkable Christian writers of our time . He combines vast knowledge and clarity of mind, so prolific in production it can leave one breathless, with a practical and pastoral career.'
