Recommends it for: Christians who read poetry in their devotions
Very easy to navigate and understand each of the most important Christian poets, through a short selection of each their poems.

In my "Christian Poetry" books owned / wished list at Worldcat.org: http://www.worldcat.org/title/sacrifi....
actually a college textbook of mine, for a "Religious Poetry" class. the instructor intended to find a book focusing on a variety of religious poetry around the world, but could only find a Christian anthology, go fig.

still, a good book for what it is. a thick book of poetry. not to be taken lightly, or dropped on toes.

Read this for a Christianity in Poetry course. Loved it. It's full of just beautiful poetry, and history as well. worth the read.
not done with it quite yet, but I've read most of it and it's fantastic.
I don't often read poetry, but I like this large anthology and have reread favorites several times.

If I had to choose five books to take with me on a deserted island, this would be one of them.
Excellent! I enjoyed the poetry and the history lesson that developed from my reading...
