"Dr. Randle Manwaring is a very unusual person. In addition to having been a Wing Commander in the Royal Air Force and serving with distinction in the World War, he also developed an outstanding career in the City of London becoming a Managing Director. But he was also already a poet and has had many volumes of verse published as well as being anthologized variously not only in poetry collections but also in hymn books. In addition he has proved himself an able historian being published by the Cambridge University press. He is an active Christian and has headed up various Christian organizations. Many readers will find his work on poetry in the Bible quite fascinating. In many ways it completes a long life as a poet and scholar." - (From the Foreword) John Pearce, MA (Oxon), Prebendary, St. Paul's Cathedral, London"
