About this title


The Apostle Paul exhorted the church at Philippi to "work out your salvation." George Herbert, a 17th century Anglican priest, worked out his salvation in his poetry as he portrayed "a picture of the many spiritual conflicts that has passed betwixt God and my soul before I could subject mine to the will of Jesus my Master." George Herbert was a member of a distinguished family, a scholar at Cambridge, a member of the English Parliament, and, finally, a priest in the Anglican Church and a rector of a small rural parish. Most noteworthy, however, was his poetry. In it Herbert made his great contribution to English literature and Christian Spirituality. As Harold Bloom points out in The Best Poems of the English Language, there are only a few extraordinary devotional poets in the English any standard George Herbert is the devotional poety proper in English." In this book are over 50 poems that reveal the spiritual struggles of, and the peace found by, this celebrated devotional poet. Each of the poems is presented and then followed by a commentary on the poem along with reflections designed to enable the reader to connect with the poems on a personal level. The purpose of the book is to assist the reader in understanding and experiencing the wholeness of George Herbert's poetry and thereby to enable the reader to come to a better understanding of God's workings in his or her life.
