  • This anthology provides a balanced and representative cross-section of the finest Christian verse in the English language in the last 1000 years. In addition to the chronological arrangement, brief biographical and anecdotal introductions for each section stress the relationships of the poets both with each other, and with the trials and tribulations of the periods in which they lived.
