Hear My Cry
Hear My Cry is an illustrated collection of psalms, poetry, prayers and hymns for individual and community reflection during the centenary commemoratons of the First World War.
Also included are personal stories drawn from original research among families whose ancestors fought or died in the War. Many of the soldiers' Bibles and diaries have survived and reveal dramatic evidence of the part they played.
Sistery Wendy Beckett provides a commentary on paintings by Pieter Bruegel and John Nash and the moving words of poets such as Wilfred Owen, Eleanor Farjeon and Siegfried Sassoon are represented alongside other voices from the war years.
Through the years, the Scriptures have provided comfort, inspiration and challenge to those impacted by human conflict. By reconnecting with these timeless words through this book, we can remember those who have gone before us and express our hopes and prayers for military personnel currently serving around the world.
