Review:

Religious art reaches towards the divine. The symbolic aspects of religion show the divine reaching towards us -- engaging our imagination and working for our transformation. Symbols point to something beyond themselves and enable us to participate in it. Signs Of Grace: Sacraments In Poetry And Prose is an anthology wherein the literary symbol and the religious are brought together, enriching both. The sacraments are the main symbols of the Christian Church, and are the occasions in our culture when religious practice most closely touches people's experience. This anthology looks beyond the two main sacraments of baptism and the eucharist, or even the other five (confirmation, ordination, marriage, forgiveness, and anointing at death). All are seen in a wider sacramental framework which includes the natural world, people and art. The extracts range from Shakespeare to Graham Green, from George Herbert to Emily Dickinson. Each is given a short introduction which sets it in its context and relates it to a developing account of the sacraments. Signs Of Grace is a book that will be read and re-read over and over, with each reading revealing fresh insights and renewed inspirations. Highly recommended. -- Midwest Book Review
