Item Description...
Poetic musings on the wonder of the Word made flesh

Publishers Description
Since her childhood in Toronto, celebrated poet Luci Shaw has announced Advent greetings to her friends and family with a poem and original artwork. What began as a simple childhood craft has now become beloved annual tradition encompassing not only her poetry, but the work of well-known artists.

In "Accompanied by Angels" these annual poems are collected together for the first time. Beginning with the joy, terror and wonder of the annunciation, Shaw leads the reader on a poetic journey through the birth, life and death of the Jesus the Christ, and finally to the joyous and unexpected wonder of his resurrection. Her subjects run from the mundane to the sublime encompassing birds in flight and waiting old men to fiery angels and storm-ravaged ridges.

The latest work in her illustrious catalog, "Accompanied by Angels" will be loved not only by Luci's many enthusiasts, but also by those who reflect deeply on the incarnational mystery that lies at the center of Christian faith.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
"the life of Jesus"  Dec 15, 2009
Accompanied by Angels: Poems of the Incarnation is a lovely and deeply meaningful book. A gift for anytime of the year.

Luci Shaw begins her Introduction by recalling when she was ten or eleven in the 1940s. It was winter in Toronto, and she was making her own Christmas cards. Over the years, her number of Advent poems grew and appeared in a variety of publications. Luci writes, "Many of these poems have also appeared in other collections of my poetry, but here, for the first time, I've drawn them all together between the covers of a single book, and arranged them in what seemed to me to reflect the chronological order of the life of Jesus" (p. x).

The rich and well-crafted poems are organized into five sections: Announcement, Arrival, Living, Dying, Risen. Acknowledgments conclude the book.

Luci also writes: "Like all art, these poems are only 'hints and guesses.' But perhaps they will suggest some new possibilities and give you some fresh glimpses of the One who came to earth, and who in birth and resurrection was 'accompanied by angels'" (p. xi-xii).

This book was published by Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. in 2006, copyright by Luci Shaw. I continue to reread these poems, often aloud. And I continue to give this book to others. This year, my gift went to a library.
Great Advent Devotion  Jan 1, 2009
My wife and I have enjoyed this book of poems the last 2 years as a Advent/Christmas devotion. Many of the insights are new to us and old truths are made fresh. We each read the same poem out loud and then share our thoughts with each other. It is some of the most enjoyable poetry we have read any time of the year.
