The Lion Christian Poetry Collection sold over 27,000 copies in hardback in the UK alone. The Lion Book of Christian Poetry brings a selection of poems from this collection into a smaller-format paperback edition. This new anthology contains 500 poems by more than 200 poets spanning over 1000 years, including contemporary works from around the world. Authors range from Peter Abelard to Seamus Heaney and from Mary Herbert to Veronica Zundel; the dates of each author, along with brief biographical details, are included at the back of the book. The poems are arranged thematically to enable the reader to dip in and out of the collection as suits their particular need or mood. The book includes poems to reflect on in a quiet moment, poems to use on special occasions (such as weddings or funerals, Christmas or Easter), love poems, poems to make you think, and poems of praise.
