He was maybe the most significant literary figure of our time to declare his Christian faith and his terror of dying.

Betjeman used his formidable gifts for poetry to show us how to think about the Anglican faith and about Englishness and Christianity in general. Here is an anthology of about 75 poems on religious themes, with clarifying footnotes and a critical introduction that offers an overview of his life and poetry as well as a commentary on some of his more difficult poems.Here is a new perspective on Betjemans life and beliefs. This new edition of Betjemans religious poetry will demonstrate that Betjeman is the great poet of the Church in the twentieth century- it will also introduce delightful, accessible and important poetry to new readers.

It will suggest to both British and American readers ways of thinking about spiritual cultural and ecclesiastical matters as well as about the intersection of literature and art.
