Life has changed dramatically in the 400 years since John Donne wrote his Devotions. Yet despite the advances of the intervening centuries, we find that, like Donne, we are still subject to sickness and death. We still long for comfort. We still want to know what God is saying to us.
Philip Yancey found surprisingly relevant answers to those perennial questions in the works of John Donne. “Nothing had prepared me for his raw account of confrontations with God,” says Yancey, who has updated the great poet’s work for modern readers in his book UNDONE: A Modern Rendering of John Donne’s Devotions.
We invite you to join us for an Online Conversation with Philip Yancey, Friday, March 15 at 1:30 p.m. ET, to discuss Donne’s timeless insights on life, death, poetry, and peace.
Thank you to our sponsors, Ambassador William and Mrs. Mary Hudson, and to our co-host, Rabbit Room, for their support of this event!
