Unfurling by Ian Adams
The first collection of poetry from the author demonstrates his ability to draw on spiritual tradition while being in the present moment. Tenderness is the dominant mood of collection and this approach brings the reader close to the natural world and its inherent holiness, including surprising new images of God as, for example, the 'robin in winter'. The collection contains a short series based on the traditional Hours of Devotion, helping the reader to re-imagine the inner meaning of turning to God at different times of day. Unfurlings, epiphanies, beatitudes, devotions, this small book of poems would serve well for individual or group reflections.
