Parable and Paradox


by Malcolm Guite

ISBN: 9781848258594


Since the publication of the bestselling 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 five 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.
