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.
