'Writers - poets and novelists, playwrights and bards - have always been essential witnesses to the ambiguities...the all-encompassing mysteries of birth and death, primary witnesses to matters of God and the soul. Unfortunately many of these witnesses have been sidelined in the curricula of our schools for the last fifty or so years, depriving us of ready access to the very language that is essential for living humanly. thanks to this new edition of Shadow & Light they are back on the playing field, taking their rightful place as witnesses to unexpurgated life.' - Eugene Peterson, Professor of Spiritual Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, BC
