About the Book

Michael Martin’s Meditations in Times of Wonder is a collection of what might be called “postmodern metaphysical poetry.” It inhabits a space characterized by love and anger, by pathos and laughter, by perplexity and grace.




Praise

“It has been said that mysticism begins in mist and ends in schism. This is true of the heretics but not of the saints and anchorites, anchored in orthodoxy, whose mystic flights penetrate the heart of Mystery Himself. Michael Martin’s poetry, like that of St. John of the Cross, is animated by a true mysticism which penetrates the mist of mystery and heals the schism that rends faith from reason.”

Meditations in Times of Wonder hums the harmonies between the mundane and transcendent, between the natural and the divine, between time-bound and timeless truths. The effect of many of the poems is that of a Pre-Raphaelite painting—rich, allusive, nourishing, and evocative. Martin’s surprising, revelatory images do the work, at once grounding and unleashing the reader, offering an invitation to participate along with the poet in the creative act and the life of faith.”
