The Vanishing Song by Jay Hulme
In The Vanishing Song, trans Christian poet Jay Hulme goes in search of what is all but lost in contemporary faith, the 'beautiful and holy and wild' way of the saints, and the alluring, perplexing mystery of the places they chose for themselves - forests, caves, rocky outcrops in the sea.
Revelling in the untamed nature of creation and the holiness that is to be found there, these poems celebrate and summon the spirit of those who did unhinged things for God, in order that we might recover a sense of uncontrollable wonder and the danger of the divine as well as its beauty. The Vanishing Song is a call of the wild to faith that is adventurous and unafraid.
