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).”
