PROFESSOR Tim Kendall, President of the War Poets Association, has edited Poetry of the First World War: An anthology (OUP, £14.99 (£13.50); 978-0-19-958144-3), with an introduction, notes, and an essay on each poet (and a ribbon marker). He has room for women poets and music-hall and trench songs, but his principle is "the best poems in the best order", depth rather than breadth.

BRUCE N. FISK's A Hitchhiker's Guide to Jesus: Reading the Gospel on the ground  follows Norm, a fictitious US student, who travels to the Holy Land to discover whether study will help him to follow Jesus more closely or make him abandon his faith. Fisk includes a wide range of ideas (Baker Academic, £14.99 (£13.50); 978-0-8010-3606-4).
