This anthology of over a hundred poems written by Calvinists is a surprising introduction to the aesthetics of the Reformed tradition. Who knew there was such a host of Calvinist poets?
Containing notes and short biographies to aid your enjoyment, this collection is the perfect starting point for appreciating these men and women -- and the faith that inspired their words.
"Calvinists have had a great many negative things said over the years about their lack of artistic soul.... Not surprisingly, I believe this caricature to be grotesquely unfair. Because the proof is in the pudding, I thought the best thing to do would be to assemble a collection of poems by various Calvinists, and let you all, members of the fair and open-minded public, have a look at them." ~ from the editors
