I pray in poems

Meditations on Poetry and Faith

Dave Worster

Nov/2015, 160 Pages, Paperback, 6 x 9

ISBN-13: 9780819231864



I pray in poems explores the intersection of great works of poetry and Christian faith, offering meditations on what these works illustrate about Christian living. Readers will encounter authors as diverse as William Shakespeare, T.S. Eliot, Rumi, Mary Oliver, and Anna Kamienska. Each poem is followed by an analytical reflection that explores the work and places it within the context of one or more Biblical passages. These meditations will assist the reader in understanding and appreciating the poetry, and will also offer insightful, perhaps even inspiring, thoughts on what it means to live a life in faith.

Dave Worster has a PhD in English Literature from UNC-Chapel Hill and has taught English for twenty two years. A baptized Christian since 1995, he has taught Sunday school and led numerous literature-based adult education sessions for the past fifteen years. In addition, he has written and directed liturgical dramas and liturgies. He lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
