This year marks the centenary of the birth of John Betjeman, one of the twentieth century's great makers of the Christian imagination. Though widely known as a poet of nostalgia for a bygone England, Betjeman's remarkable talent and influence rank him with the greatest literary proponents of Christianity in our era: C. S. Lewis, G. K. Chesterton, T. S. Eliot and R. S. Thomas. This collection illustrates the vital role of faith in the formation of this great poet and provides a new perspective on his life and beliefs, demonstrating that Betjeman is the pre-eminent poet of the Church in the twentieth century.
-Publisher



Sir John Betjeman was one of the twentieth century's great makers of the Christian imagination. He was maybe the most significant literary figure of our time to declare his Christian faith and his terror of dying. Betjeman used his formidable gifts for poetry to show us how to think about the Anglican faith and about Englishness and Christianity in general. Here is an anthology of about 75 poems on religious themes, with clarifying footnotes and a critical introduction that offers an overview of his life and poetry as well as a commentary on some of his more difficult poems.

Here is a new perspective on Betjeman's life and beliefs. This new edition of Betjeman's religious poetry will demonstrate that Betjeman is the great poet of the Church in the twentieth century; it will also introduce delightful, accessible and important poetry to new readers. It will suggest to both British and American readers ways of thinking about spiritual cultural and ecclesiastical matters as well as about the intersection of literature and art.
