The Divine Embrace: Discovering the Reality of God’s Love by Christina Rees (published by Darton, Longman & Todd, 2006,  ISBN 0232526230)

In chapter 10 ‘A Mutual Delight’ (pp.135-137), Rees discusses the poems that Richard set in 1985 as To One (Op.9). She argues that:

“[The] only way we can know God is through our own experience; by embarking on a personal journey of discovery and gradually learning to recognise how God is at work in our lives. Through that recognition we may begin to see the world, each other and ourselves the way God sees us.”
