A Garden in Darkness


A reimagining of the garden of gethsemane. While the world sleeps, animals, plants, pools and rocks keep watch with a Christ-like figure who has withdrawn to a garden, offering solace, comfort, warning, and intimations of hope and renewal. Poetic words by Rosalind O’Melia give voice to each aspect of the garden, with details of images from Michael Cook’s paintings. The sequence can be seen here. This new edition now shows the complete paintings and has an afterword by Canon Andrew Wilson.
