The third edition of this classic anthology features updated poetry and essays and drops the drama section, making the new volume both more relevant and more affordable--and a perfect book for readers seeking spiritual enrichment.

Now in its third edition, Shadow & Light continues to stand apart because of what it offers readers: rich, inspiring, and challenging excerpts from great literature, spanning centuries and cultures, all exploring the texture of faith and spirituality. Unlike comparable titles that draw on explicitly Christian works, this important anthology mines spiritual moments in so-called religious and secular texts alike, introducing readers to a broader spectrum of literature and inviting them to expand the capacity of their souls.

A perennial favorite among professors, students, and general readers seeking wisdom and illumination, this revised edition of Shadow & Light features several key changes. Most substantially, the editors have deleted the full-length plays, responding to reader comments that they'd prefer to supplement the text with full-length dramas of their choice. This omission has made the anthology more affordable, allowing readers to spend the balance on outside plays as desired. The editors have further updated the poetry section and expanded the essay section to include timely works on environmental issues.

The third volume continues to include works from Langston Hughes, Flannery O'Connor, Isaac Bashevis Singer, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Horton Foote, Li-Young Lee, Annie Dillard, Emily Dickinson, and many more.

Book Description Abilene Christian University Press, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Shadow Light has a variety of selections spanning a range of literature from medieval religious lyrics to contemporary American poetry, from John Bunyan to Isaac Bashevis Singer and john Updike, it makes vividly clear that the exploration of spiritual values is not limited to believers of one faith, or, indeed, not even to believers. -Robert Alter, Professor of Hebrew and Comparative Literature, University of California, Berkeley; author of The Art of Biblical Narrative 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 H. Peterson.
