Product Description

Review

'the best available concise introduction to Traherne's life and work.' -- David F. Ford, Regius Professor of Divinity, University of Cambridge 'Many people love the beauty of nature, but few have read one of its finest poets. Many people worship God, but few have seen his glory at the heart of all creation. Many study theology, but few do so with a sense of childlike wonder. The answer to all of these is: read Thomas Traherne. And if you want to know why, and what to look for in particular, read this splendid book.' -- Tom Wright, Bishop of Durham 'This "reader", for that is what it is, can be dipped into at any point, with gratitude to the editor and to Traherne; for we do refuse happiness, as he reminds us again and again, and these timeless reminders have survived by what seems like miraculous chance.' -- P J. Kavanagh, The Tablet October 2008 'Throughout the book, Inge achieves the dleicate balance between academic exposition and clarity, making the whole thing accessible to the average reader. This is a comprehensove study of Traherne's work written by someone who is clearly both an expert and an enthusiast'. -- The NEWSpaper - Spring 2009

Great Selections Feb. 27 2013
By George H. Back - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I enjoyed Centuries, liked Waking Up in Heaven, and now love Happiness and Holiness. They have different strengths, but all are a blessing. These works of Traherne keep you in your 'right mind' and present a viewpoint from within the Garden of Eden. Traherne rarely strays into the Knowledge of Good & Evil where most of us dwell too much. His words celebrate the delights of the Tree of Life.
