George Herbert is widely regarded as the greatest devotional poet the world has known. Here Richard Harries introduces the poet and reflects on 24 of his greatest poems, six for each of the four weeks of Advent.

Each week focuses on a different theme.

Week 1: Winning the Heart
Week 2: Held by Christ
Week 3: Welcome
Week 4: All Praise

After each poem Richard Harries reflects on the poet's sense of the divine and draws out spiritual insights for the reader to think about as they prepare to celebrate Christ's appearing.

The result is a book that readers will want to return to over and over again, whether during Advent or in any other season of the year.
