The Hound of Heaven - 2nd Illustrated Edition
 

Authored by Brian Oxley, Sally Oxley, Sonja Peterson
Authored with Devin Brown
Edition: 2

When Jesus told His followers how much we all need God's love, it was not a theological treatise. Instead, He told a story: There once was a man who had two sons... The simplicity of this famous parable belies some richly profound truths. The story Francis Thompson tells in his classic poem The Hound of Heaven works in exactly this way-stirring our hearts with a yearning we may not fully understand. Something comes through the poem that we cannot quite put our finger on... This book actually contains two versions of the poem, the original and a modern adaptation. Despite the depth and beauty of the poem, it is written in a vernacular difficult to understand. Our rationale for the adaptation of this masterpiece is to reveal its timeless beauty and insights for a broad, modern audience.
