This week, we bring a talk given by Malcolm Guite at the sixth Church Times Festival of Faith and Literature, in Oxfordshire, in February.
Drawing on some of his own sonnets from his collection, Parable and Paradox (Canterbury Press, 2016), and on the work of Donne and Herbert, Malcolm explores the two great commandments, and, more widely, the call and response of love in the Christian life.
His most recent poetry collection is After Prayer (Canterbury Press).
Watch Malcolm’s other talk at the festival, with Roger Wagner, here.
Malcolm Guite is well-known to Church Times readers for his weekly Poet’s Corner column. The second collection of columns, Heaven in Ordinary, will published on 20 September by Canterbury Press.
