Book spine poetry

The Eerdmans blog put me on to this gallery of book spine poems. I've never heard of such a thing before, but I think it's a wonderful idea. Luckily, in my house there are books everywhere: and there is almost no method of organisation. On the same shelf you might find Harry Potter, plus a toddler's picture book, plus a book of prayers and something about vampires and the poems of T. S. Eliot, plus a cookbook and a mildewy edition of Thomas Aquinas and something no longer recognisable after the children have defaced it with crayons and sand and glue. A perfect way to arrange your shelves (I discovered) if you are an aspiring book spine poet! So after rummaging around the house for a while, here are five poems – one of which is really a complete systematic theology:


THE NIGHT SWIMMER:


A HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE:


LETTER HOME FROM BOARDING SCHOOL IN WINTER:



SILENT LISTENERS:
 

THE STORY OF THE BIBLE, TOLD IN EIGHT VOLUMES:
