Additional Information

Since 1633, when The Temple was first published, many notable Christians have testified of their love for George Herbert's poetry. The great nineteenth-century preacher C. H. Spurgeon and his wife would sometimes read Herbert's poetry together on Sunday evenings. Richard Baxter wrote, "Herbert speaks to God like one that really believeth a God, and whose business in the world is most with God." C. S. Lewis described Herbert as "a man who seemed to me to excel all the authors I had ever read in conveying the very quality of life as we actually live it from moment to moment . . ."

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

This book takes 52 of George Herbert's poems and gives a simple, but in-depth, explanation of them. If you are looking to get into poetry this is a great start.
I have never been a big fan of poetry but Dr. Jim Orrick does a great job breaking down the poems enough to help me understand it but in such a way that allows the poem to speak for itself.
My husband and I have thoroughly enjoyed George Herbert's poetry. The editor has done a thorough work in explaining the meanings of the poems included in this anthology. These notes have helped us to understand Herbert's meanings. Poetry is often difficult to read and understand, and without the notes and explanations the same would be true for us with this work. We have read them aloud together and found the messages inspiring and edifying for our Christian life.
