Parable and Paradox: sonnets on the sayings of Jesus

Author:

£10.99

Since the publication of the bestselling “Sounding the Seasons” (also available from the Northumbria Community shop), Malcolm Guite has repeatedly been asked for more sonnets. This new collection offers a sequence of 50 sonnets that focus on many passages in the Gospels: the Beatitudes, parables and miracles, teachings on the Kingdom, and the `hard sayings’ – Jesus’ challenging demands with which we wrestle. In addition this collection includes:

  • A sequence of five sonnets on ‘The Wilderness’, exploring mysterious stories of divine encounter such as Jacob’s wrestling with the angel.
  • Poetic reflections on music, hospitality and ecology.
  • Seven short poems celebrating the days of creation.
  • A biblical index pairing the poems with scripture readings for use in worship
