" For generations, poets have turned to the Bible for insight and inspiration.
What did so many creative minds find in the scripture ?
Is the Bible still a vital source of poetic inspirations ? "

" Chapters Into Verse is the first comprehensive collection ever made of poems written in English inspired by the Bible.
A ground-breaking anthology, it introduces readers to a distinct heritage of English poetry: the scriptural tradition.
Though frequently ignored and sometimes suppressed, this tradition rivals the classical and is every bit as venerable. "

" Volume II follows the Gospels (harmonized) through Revelation.
The collection features verses both famous and unfamiliar, from John Donne's meditative masterpieces to D.H. Lawrence's quirky expostulations.
The editors have included poems by virtually all the prominent religious poets - among them, John Milton, George Herbert, Henry Vaughan, Edward Taylor, Christopher Smart, and Gerard Manly Hopkins.
Included, too, are devotional and visionary works form a wide range of vintage poets - Edmund Spenser, Alexander Pope, Robert Burns, William Blake, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Christina Rossetti, Alfred Tennyson, and Robert Browning. "

" Proving that the Bible is just as powerful a source of inspiration today as it was in the past, the collection assembles a mixed congregation of modern and contemporary poets, such as Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot, Elizabeth Bishop, Delmore Schwartz, Dylan Thomas, Robert Frost, Countee Cullen, William Butler Yeats, John Berryman, Robert Graves, Sylvia Plath, Allen Ginsberg, Lee Murray, Amy Clampitt, and Richard Wilbur. "

" Of enduring interest to readers of both scripture and literature, Chapters Into Verse is truly a poets' Bible.
In selection after selection, readers will encounter an astonishing variety of religious experiences, as a host of poets from many eras and many backgrounds respond to Holy Scripture spiritually, profoundly, and imaginatively. "
