From the Center: Poetic Prayers and Meditations by Robert J. Hope
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


From the biblical Psalms, through the writings of Augustine and Bernard, to the verses of John of the Cross, Gerald Manley Hopkins and Thomas Merton the language of prayer has also been the language of poetry. Writing out of that tradition, Robert J. Hope presents the reader with intense verse reflections on the universal presence of God in ourselves and in all of nature. The imagery is richly erotic, reverently evocative of the beauty of floral and faunal creation, and transparently candid in its expression of the awe experienced by mystics, lovers, and children.
