There is trouble in heaven. There is trouble on earth. But poet John Barnie refuses - intellectually and spiritually - to tire of creation's capacity for glory and joy.

In the face of corporate exploitation of man and the planet, and in spite of political cynicism and commonplace materialism, he continues to allow himself to muse on and to marvel at the immutability of beauty. 'Believing in loveliness', he searches for those dimensions beyond humanity's inhumanity and beyond the confines of dogma and doubt.

Never trite, never contrived, always pithy and contemporary, Trouble in Heaven explores the age-old complexities of man's relationship with the natural world and beyond.
