The December 22 edition of The Living Church is available online to registered subscribers. This edition features TLC’s annual roundup of gift suggestions from a variety of editorial contributors and friends, including the 104th Archbishop of Canterbury.

Rowan Williams writes, in part:

I recommend John Drury’s book on George Herbert, Music at Midnight (Penguin/Allen Lane, 2013). Drury combines a clear and vivid account of the life of this greatest of Anglican poets with close, sympathetic reading of many of his finest poems. The book is scholarly and fresh, finely produced, and accessible to any reader with a little knowledge of English history.
