Heaven in Ordinary: George Herbert and His Writings


Canterbury Press 2009

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


George Herbert is one of English spirituality’s most treasured voices and, with his contemporaries Lancelot Andrewes, Izaak Walton, and Nicholas Ferrar, he epitomizes the best of the seventeenth-century Anglican tradition—learned, holy, and self-effacing. In this volume, Philip Sheldrake explores key themes in Herbert’s work: his deep biblical and liturgical roots, his Christ-centered spirituality, his emphasis on the importance of the everyday, his strong sense of place, his understanding of discipleship, his approach to prayer, and his spirituality of service. Richly illustrated with excerpts from his poetry, prose and letters, this volume offers a comprehensive study guide to one of the most loved poetic voices.
