George Herbert’s anguish when he sensed that God was calling him to become a priest, his almost mystical vision of the priestly office, and the total dedication with which he finally embraced it, provide us with inspiration and encouragement in our own desire to serve God. In this perceptive study of four of Herbert’s best-loved poems, ‘The Collar’, ‘Love’, ‘Aaron’, and ‘The Flower’, Kenneth Mason shows how Herbert’s way with words illuminates God’s ways with the human heart.
