Beloved theologian and bishop Graham Kings has been writing poetry for thirty-five years, with many of his poems used in retreats and preaching throughout the Anglican Communion.
This collection brings together Graham's poems on a range of devotional subjects, looking on the world with the eyes of faith and observing the sacred in the ordinary. With this perspective, all things are capable of pointing beyond themselves to the truth and beauty of God.
Graham’s poetry celebrates the people, places, art, past and present, the practice of prayer, the stories that shape our lives, the rhythms of the spiritual year that have been for him doorways to the divine.
'Graham Kings' poems point us towards the beauty we might have too easily passed by.' -- Mark Oakley, author of The Splash of Words
'Graham Kings' exquisitely constructed debut as a poet does indeed nourish connections, integrating his experience with a profound devotion to tradition and literature.' -- Micheal O'Siadhail, poet and author of The Five Quintets
'These poems are meditations for a spirit-hungry modern generation. Take one a day to chew, absorb and digest.' -- Jennifer Wallace, Harris Fellow and Director of Studies in English, Peterhouse, University of Cambridge
'Luminous and evocative poems ... that will accompany many people fruitfully on their journey of faith.' -- John Barton, Emeritus Professor of the Interpretation of Holy Scripture, University of Oxford
‘I particularly enjoy the way the poems of Graham Kings chime with those of George Herbert, setting the ordinary and the slight with the strange and permanent. I value the emphasis on the strangeness of God.’ -- Dame Gillian Beer FBA, Emeritus Professor of English Literature, University of Cambridge
