“Modern folk, especially Christian people, need to rediscover the importance of poetry…I know of nothing so conducive to the fruitful Christian discipline of meditation as good poetry. More than once in my life, I’ve reached for a book of hymn-poems to breathe life into my languid faith and cold heart. The devotional benefit spawned by reflection on sublimely worded, theologically-sound lyrics cannot be overstated.”
