  • Chance Encounters : Poems

    $24.00

    A new collection from Sister Sharon Hunter, CJ celebrating the people and circumstances who help make us what we are.

    “For several months in 2020, I awoke most days at 3:00 a.m. to a mind busily at work; my own, of course. I had a choice to make, ignore it or explore it. Vivid memories, pictures really, of people I once knew climbed from the depth of my subconscious where I’d cleverly assigned them. They captured my attention, and rightfully so, for I owed them. When we reject our heritage, as I did, because it’s not image worthy, we cancel as well those who enhanced our lives. Good people, brave people, wise people, sometimes shady and crooked people, all contribute to our circle of life. To fully understand me, I must include them. Chance Encounters is my thank you to those I carelessly tossed away in quest of shallow acceptability. They’re alive once again on the pages of this book. And I’m forever grateful for their vibrant beauty, courage, ingenuity, and fascinating eccentricities. They paid the world the high compliment of being themselves.” –Sister Sharon Hunter, CJ

  • Journey To The Morning Light

    $21.00

    A posthumous collection of poems on the beauty of the seasons, creation, life and death, from beloved poet and theologian Catherine de Vinck.

    In the words of the Foreword by Mary Evelyn Tucker, the poetry of Catherine de Vinck, “calls us to ever greater awareness of who we are and where we dwell. She offers us glimpses of truth, not answers to our questions. She lights the path, sometimes with the brilliance of a single image. More often she surrounds us with the atmosphere of dusk–the twilight arising in our consciousness where mood and memory mingle.”

  • Spirits In Bondage

    $25.99

    A rare glimpse of a young C. S. Lewis.

    Spirits in Bondage reveals the earliest published thoughts of C. S. Lewis. However, we find an unfamiliar Lewis–not the mature Christian but the young atheist cynic, who fought in the harrowing Great War. In these poems Lewis dreads the dangerous world that keeps us from living meaningful lives.

    Introduced by Karen Swallow Prior, this beautiful print edition of Spirits in Bondage will nuance our understanding of C. S. Lewis.

    Additional Info
    In readable and non-scholarly fashion, Niehaus, who is both a theologian and poet, provides a theological and literary analysis of the epic poems of Dante (Divine Comedy), Milton (Paradise Lost), Cowper (The Task), and Wordsworth. Niehaus also of presents the theological roots of great poetry and how it illumines our understanding of important topics such as creation, sin, hell, devil, beauty, truth, redemption, and God supremely manifested in Christ. “I hope and believe,” writes the author, “that my observations (and the observations of others whom I endorse) on the work of poetic imagination as part of the imago Dei equally well to any sort of poetry (and for that matter any art).”
