"By reminding us that dreams are the rich loam from which imagination grows and a way that the 'dreaming God' communicates with God's children so taken with their ideologies and fancies, Holmes invites us to the place in which we encounter the holy mystery of God. Deftly bringing into dialogue the science of dreaming and the religious mystery of dreams, as amply born witness to in Scripture and in the witness of the saints, she demonstrates that between them there is no mutual exclusivity. Finally, Holmes's narrations of the church's sublimation of this important means of divine communication and her own family's inhabitation of this richly textured landscape weave a prose shaped, yet poetically infused, work of theology as engaging as it is enlightening. Recommended for college, seminary, and general audiences exploring mysticism and theology." --Stephen G. Ray Jr., Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary
From the Back Cover
Set during the reign of Richard III, the play follows the trials of a group of soldiers returning home from war. This is Peter Barnes's most romantic play to date. This new play is full of dreams about home and the idea that you can never go home again. Full of humor, wit and ultimately tragedy, the play is full of many of Barnes's hallmark dramatic traits: looking at history askance and commenting on the fallibility of the British character.
