For decades, Loren has been well known as a writer, teacher, and pioneer of the Christian environmentalism movement. Loren’s poetry, until now, has been less known. In Imago Mundi, his first published collection, Loren looks deeply into the geography of southwestern B.C., drawing wisdom from tides, beaches, seals, and farm equipment. He demonstrates a gift for revealing, as Eugene Peterson puts it, “the sounds and rhythms and metaphors that keep us alert to the ‘Word made flesh.’”
This lecture is part of our 2017 Summer Evening Public Lecture Series.
