An Unexpected Light
Theology and Witness in the Poetry and Thought of Charles Williams, Micheal O’Siadhail and Geoffrey Hill
By David C. Mahan
A challenging and original work that argues that the arts, and poetry in particular, offer an invaluable and under-explored medium for developing and communicating theological insights.
“David Mahan is a superb close reader of poetry and also a rich theological thinker. This book shows how poetry and theology can come together to light up the great questions of human life today. Above all, his profound engagement with three fascinating poets – O’Siadhail, Williams, and Hill – will expand the circle of those who recognize their great significance for the twenty-first century”
