Roger Housden author of the best-selling Ten Poems to Change Your Life celebrates the growing popularity of mystical poetry with this beautiful compilation from the Christian contemplative tradition. Although the writings of the Sufi mystics (Rumi and Hafez) and the Indian mystics (Mirabai and Kabir) have reached a wide audience in recent years the poetry of the Christian mystics has yet to be discovered by a general audience. For Lovers of God Everywhere a collection of nearly 100 poems from both historic and contemporary writers heralds the reemergence of the great spiritual voices of the Christian traditiona tradition with its own love songs to God cries of longing and bliss of union. In this collection Roger introduces us to some of the foremost poets of both the Eastern and Western Christian traditions. He takes us from the wisdom of the Desert Fathers to the passion of St. Augustine through the medieval ecstasies of St. Francis of Assisi and St. Catherine of Siena to the subtleties of St. John of the Cross and St. Teresa of Avila; and on to contemporary voices such as Rainer Maria Rilke T.S. Eliot and Mary Oliver. Rogers insightful commentary on each poem inspires us to take its words more deeply into our souls and shows how the mystical tradition transcends sectarian divides and speaks to the heart of humanity.
