Robert Atwan is the Series Editor of The Best American Essays and co-edits the successful Oxford textbook Popular Writing in America with Don McQuade.
'Now that so many readers come to literature entirely ignorant of its Christian heritage, this collection fills an unfortunately necessary gap.' English Studies, Volume 75, Number 6, November 1994 'Every now and again an anthology appears which manages to open one's eyes to a new aspect of literature. This two-volume collection is one such, a thick, rich anthology of poetry inspired by the Bible. Imagine the difference if you gave this to your vicar. As he prepared the week's sermon, besides looking up the Hebrew or Greek meaning, he could also choose a relevant piece of poetry. Even if the sermon was rubbish, the congregation would get a bit of decent verse.' The Sign, February 1994 A wealth of literature and poetry is collected by Robert Atwan in these volumes which will last the reader for many years. In common with all anthologies there is a great deal which can be found in other collections. It follows a great tradition of such books and will prove to be a valuable devotional aid, much appreciated by those with wider poetic appreciation.' John Dale, Methodist Recorder 'The editor's range has been extremely wide ... I cannot imagine the work as a whole being better done.' Peter Levi, Catholic Herald
