by Arthur O. Roberts
The philosopher asks deeply, What is it all about? The poet gives concrete expression to the vision of truth through image, metaphor, and intensified language. In Arthur Roberts we have the Christian philosopher and the Christian poet combined, with the result that his poems both ask deeply and move us powerfully with their concrete vision of truth. Quaker Prayer, one of the best prayer poems, reflects the strength and beauty of Arthur Roberts's philosopher/poet combination. Old and new readers alike will welcome this edition by a much-respected and widely-read contemporary writer.
