Poets and Saints by Jamie George*

This beautifully written book was another one I savored.  Mr. George, a pastor at Journey Church in Tennessee, delves into various poets' and saints' lives and provides thought-provoking spiritual applications.  To research this book and to produce a movie about the people featured, he and a crew traveled to the locations where these individuals resided or made their mark.  He also brought along some of his children.
So this book is also a travel memoir with some amusing stories.
Such creativity!
Individuals featured: St. Patrick, William Cowper, John Newton, C.S. Lewis, George MacDonald, Saint Therese of Lisieux, John Calvin, St. Augustine of Hippo, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Peter and Martin Luther.
My favorite individuals featured were St. Patrick and Peter.
*Highly recommend.
