MACHEN STUDIES:

Preface to The Ghost Ship – Writing scores of prefaces and forewords for other writers, Machen created an eccentric body of work both entertaining and insightful. We offer one of his best examples.

009  Ordinary Time by Phillip Neal Tippin


Phillip Tippin’s incarnational vision bursts into life through robust language, formal precision and vivid imagery. With luminous density, Ordinary Time contemplates how the natural world mirrors liturgical life through close attention to common grace. Echoing elements of Hopkins and Guite—but with a voice wholly his own—Tippin traces the thin line between heaven and earth.

Available for purchase August 2020. For a glimpse into Tippin’s poetic vision, visit his author page.
