Theological Poets

Peter Leithart once said in an issue of Credenda/ Agenda: “We are devotees of the Word, people of the book. Yet we can’t write stories or poetry. This is a scandal.” It is a scandal! And, while stories get some attention, poetry rarely does. So I’d like to take this opportunity to call to mind theological poets ranging through history up to the times of the mid-20th century. Let’s read them, learn from them, and develop our own!

Caveat: The list will be pretty heavy on English-speakers since poetry rarely translates. I’ll mark otherwise where I am able.

Theological Poets through the Mid-20th Century

Living Lutheran Theological Poets

Also, for your reading pleasure, check out Dream of the RoodRood, in this context, is another way to say crucifix.
Care to bring more to my attention? Please do so! Let’s get a great big list of theological poets all in one place so we can bookmark it and check these poets out at our liesure!

When Someone Dies (for children)

Julie Stiegemeyer is, by all accounts, someone I should have met. Maybe I have. She even looks familiar! Do you ever feel that way? I think we even lived in the same city for a spell! Anyway, Julie Stiegemeyer has long been an author my friends have turned to for children’s books (high praise in itself), so today I’ll review When Someone Dies Find Comfort in Jesus.
