Reviews - What do our customers think?
an excellent collection  Feb 2, 2007
This is one of the best collections that I have ever read. As one who reads simply for pleasure, I enjoy books that are weighty in matter but easy in reading. The poems in this collection are in this category. Some of the poems are also sung as hymns. When these poems stand apart from the music, their poetic qualities shine even more radiantly in the symmetry of rhyme and contents.

I would like to commend on the introduction written by the editor as well. It begins with a striking presentation of salvation.

On the condition of man: (quoted from the introduction) "Two themes, two polarities as it were, define the condition of man in a fallen world: that of the misery in which he is abjectly sunk and that of the grandeur to which he is nevertheless called. Gravity and grace. The downward pull of the one; the upward surge of the other. On one side, an impacted oppression of sin, depravity, and death; on the other, an exhilaration of grace, glory, and God. There, amid so many splendid, unending collisions, is a man's life to be found. And only in death does one at last arrive at such resolution as befits a being not meant for this world: indeed, a creature the total trajectory of whose being is intended to carry him breathcatchingly beyond this world."

On the all sufficiency of Divine Grace: (again quoted from the introduction) "Yet we have it on faith that no shadow exists---no wound of sin so deep, nor the scar tissue of accumulated corruption so thick---to overmaster the power of the mercy of Christ.

...for Christ plays in ten thousand places,
Lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not his
To the Father through the features of men's faces.
---Gerard Manley Hopkins"

To rephrase Regis Martin, man's daily wrestle on this intriguing matter between God and himself heightens his spirit and deepens his soul. Poetry becomes the sublime language through which he express himself as man.
Beautiful  Oct 22, 2002
Dr. Martin's own introduction is just as beautiful as any of the poems found inside. I highly recommend this book.
