Editorial Reviews


'Where Shanks, in this thoughtful, cultured book, is right, and so is needed, is getting us to see that certain works of art, not just the poets he discusses, have the effect on us that sacred scripture and Christian truths ought to have, and often fail to have because we have packaged them too neatly, without any sense of shakenness.' - The Rt Revd Richard Harris, Bishop of Oxford, Church Times

'One can only hope that this book will not be overlooked ... it would be tragic if such a timely and impassioned appeal to the Church to step out of its grave-clothes went unheard.' - John Pridmore, Modern Believing

'A highly teachable book for seminarians and one with insights to offer literary criticism and continental philosophy.' - Cleo Kearns, Religious Studies Review
