Overview

In this splendid collection of poetry, an enormous range of literary styles, historical periods, and religious backgrounds is represented. There are works from poetic masters such as Elizabeth Barrett Browning, John Bunyan, John Donne, John Milton, Alfred Lord Tennyson, and Charles Wesley. The collection also includes contemporary lyricists such as Eugene Peterson and Madeleine L'Engle. From various eras and diverse backgrounds these poets respond to Scripture profoundly and imaginatively.

The Poetic Bible is arranged according to the themes Genesis and the Pentateuch, the Histories, the Wisdom books, the Prophets, the Gospels, the Epistles, and the book of Revelation. As each poet expands the themes of Scripture, he or she conveys the deepest emotions of the soul and the essentials of the Christian faith. Refreshing and encouraging as devotional reading, The Poetic Bible is also an outstanding resource for ministers, speakers, teachers, and writers.
