Acclaimed author Philip Yancey renders 17th century poet John Donne’s meditations on suffering into modern English, revealing that Donne’s world of the plague was not so very different from our own. As the world entered a long dark night, Yancey returned to a nearly 400-year-old manuscript for guidance. In it, he found a trustworthy companion for living through a global pandemic - or any other crisis.
As Yancey says,
“Nothing had prepared me for John Donne’s raw account of confrontations with God.”
