About the Anthology

This global collection of poetry features prominent Christian poets from Syria, Armenia, Europe, Ethiopia, China, the Philippines, and Mexico who are likely to be unfamiliar to readers in the West. To Heaven's Rim includes translations from Christian poets such as A.E. Stallings, Rowan Williams, and Scott Cairns as well as translations by Canadian poets such as Governor General’s Award winner Jan Zwicky, O.C., Joanne Epp, Sally Ito, and Sarah Klassen.
