Since the publication of Sounding the Seasons, 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 seven 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.
