Overview

Poetry has always been an elegant, effective means of expression and reflection. It is no surprise then that, like John Newton, many Christians have used this medium to express the profound joys and struggles they have encountered in their journey with God. With this in mind, biblical scholar Ben Witherington III has teamed up with literature professor Christopher Mead Armitage to produce this innovative annotated anthology of Christian poetry. The Poetry of Piety offers both expert literary and theological analysis of a wide range of Christian poetry from the sixteenth century to the present. Each section consists of a brief biographical introduction to the author, a literary critique and theological analysis of one or more poems, and questions for personal reflection/formation. Works from twenty-eight authors, including John Donne, George Herbert, Christina Rossetti, T. S. Eliot, C. S. Lewis, Langston Hughes, and John Updike, are covered.
