the Poetry of the Gospels A lyric
companion to the Lectionary
Elizabeth Michael Boyle, OP
Preaching the Poetry of the Gospels demonstrates that not only the
Fourth Gospel but also the Synoptics can be read with understanding
when they are interpreted as narrative poetry. For the Sundays of
Advent, Holy Family, Epiphany, Lent and Easter, as well as the special
days of the Immaculate Conception, Christmas Eve and Day, Ash Wednesday,
the Triduum, the Holy Trinity, and the Holy Body and Blood of Christ,
the author offers a poet's reflection on the literary devices in
the liturgical texts and a gathering of poems about the gospel event.
“This work is a sparkling contribution
to contemporary conversations about science and its relationship
to faith and theology. Unlike many other works on the topic, it
is prayerful and poetic. Fully aware of the differences between
science and poetry, the author takes the metaphorical terminology
of science as an invitation to constructive theological interpretation
of nature. Readers will find this book both wise and enjoyable.”
John F. Haught, Distinguished Research Professor, Georgetown University
In Science as Sacred Metaphor, Sister Boyle leads the reader to
unravel the fascinating threads of science and follow them to
the marvelous skein of spiritual insight and contemplative wonder.
With a blend of scientific fact, powerful poetry, and spiritual
exploration, she helps the reader discover anew and more deeply
the ever-gracious Mystery in whom all that exists “lives
and moves and has its being.”
