New poetry publication by Patrick Purnell SJ


The long-awaited follow-up to Patrick Purnell's first poetry collection has just been published by Way Books. The Book of Furrows follows Imagine, which was published in 2004.

Fr Purnell, who this September celebrates 68 years as a Jesuit, worked for many years in education and in catechetics and has since been involved in giving the Spiritual Exercises.  Many of the poems in both books have been inspired by his experience of spiritual direction, and some of them have recently reached a wider audience through BBC Radio 4's programme Something Understood. The Book of Furrows is organized around the Weeks of the Spiritual Exercises and events in the life of Christ.
