A Sparrow Falls

Songs of Faith, Hope and Charity

Authored by Dr Stephen C Lovatt

Stephen Lovatt was borne in 1958 in Stoke-on-Trent, England. The jolt of his mother's death when he was fourteen, made him resolve to become a member of the Methodist Church. He was accepted to read physics at Trinity College in 1976. He was received into the Catholic Church in 1979. After graduating, he worked in the electronics industry. In 1990, he returned to academic studies and was awarded a PhD in Physics in 1993. At about this time he discovered the works of Plato. He published his first non-fiction book "New Skins for Old wine: Plato's Wisdom for Today's world" in 2009, followed by "The Good of Being" in 2012.
He has always been interested in hymnody and poetry, especially that of William Blake. He started to write poetry seriously in 2009 after moving to Cheltenham. This is his fourth collection of poems. Many of the poems were written during and as a response to the hospitalisation and near death of a dear friend. Others attempt to address the question "why does God allow us to suffer?" The text is informed by his Platonism and Catholicism.
