What is the point of poetry? And why with our poetic genius do we create a whole imaginary supernatural realm? Isn't it enough for humankind to be rational animals, or try to be? Why are we also poetic animals, and need to be? Looking closely at various poems, this book explores poetry and theology as sister arts. It believes that poetic vision and kindness are the making of humanity.

'I ... urge as many readers of Acumen as possible to get hold of this valuable book and read, mark and inwardly digest it' -- Glyn Pursglove in Acumen

'...a vision brilliantly explored in this extraordinary book.' -- Tony Windross in Sofia

'...the text's content is rich and powerful' -- Tom Rubens in Ethical Record

'The book isn't just an abstract argument or specualation. It looks closely at a variety of poems, including three well known passages in the New Testament... I found her reading of these passages as poetry both illuminating and liberating, and her reference to the original Greek very helpful in understanding the nuances that are inevitably lost in translation.' --

Carol Palfrey in Progressive Voices
