First published in hardcover as 'Love's Immensity', this powerful book of selections from the mystics East and West, rendered into poetry, is now available in paperback.
From Saint Paul to Julian of Norwich, Scott Cairns has lovingly examined, pressed for further revelation, and set in verse the most memorable, beautiful sayings of the fathers and mothers of Christianity. The startling result is a fresh encounter of ancient wisdom and provocation.
These poems are unified in a common claim that Love is the most compelling name of God and the most apt attribute of the Holy One in Whom we live and move and have our being. In that spirit, Cairns offers "a mere taste of the bountiful feast that awaits any who would pursue a life of faith and prayer, equipped with both the holy Scriptures and the holy tradition that surrounds them."
