Reviews - What do customers think about A Sacrifice of Praise, Second Edition?

Great Book!  Feb 21, 2008
It starts in the 4th century or so, and continues with great poems until mid twentieth century. It includes biographies of most of the poets, so you can know who they were, and what they did. It has some of the very best poems that I have ever read.
Taste of Heaven! (Christian Poetry from Caedmon to Now)  May 10, 2006
The Christian's song thru the ages, yet tinged by place in history. The wit of Alexander Pope, the martyr's courage of Anne Askew, the perspective of John Oxenham, the triumphant perseverance of Paul Laurence Dunbar, the perspicuity of C.S.Lewis, and more. This anthology is organized by historic period ("Early Victorian," for ex) and then within each period the poems are grouped by poet, with a brief bio given for each. Though the poets are of different theological backgrounds (Catholic, Protestant, Unitarian), their backgrounds are noted in the bios and the actual selections are pretty mainstream theologically.
Evangelicals take note!  Dec 11, 2002
As an evangelical, I am suprised that others of my persuasion have not discovered the treasure chest of beauty and devotion in Christian poetry. I consider it truely sublime and find reading it slowly and quietly to be a fountain of great devotional interest. I keep this volume on the shelf next to my bed and turn to it often.

This anthology in particular is an outstanding introduction to the excellence and beauty of Christian poetry. Buy it and read it slowly and prayerfully. Max Lucado is fine but sometimes it's good to think outside the box. Give this a try.

Evangelicals take note!  Dec 7, 2002
As an evangelical Christian, I continue to wonder why many evangelicals have not discovered Christian poetry for the treasure storehouse that it has always been in the English speaking world. This book is a feast to the mind as well as the spirit and is the perfect introduction to Christian poetry for the thoughtful Christian.

Max Lucado is fine but do yourself a favor and step outside the box. Buy it and read it slowly, carefully, thoughtfully and prayerfully.

From Their Lips to God's Ear  Sep 30, 2001
This anthology of poetry will serve as an excellent introduction to those unfamiliar with the genre or as a source of refreshing inspiration to those who know the works.

The book, broken into 12 chapters covering various time periods, offers all sorts of Christian poetry over roughly 1,200 years, from early Anglo-Saxon writings up to 20th Century works.

Authors are introduced with short biographies, as are the time periods to help readers get a sense of how language and religious poetic thought developed. The range of material is amazing, from works predating the Venerable Bede to Madeline L'Engle's plea to God to learn how to pray, written as she rode a New York City bus.

I found this to be a beautiful collection of value to anyone interested in Christian thought and prayer.
