Advent with Shakespeare

Synopsis
Audio podcast. Peter Graystone tries to answer the question, ‘What could Shakespeare’s plays and poems teach me about the Christian faith and the God who loves me?' He focuses on The Winter’s Tale and especially Paulina’s lines from Act 5 Scene 3:

'It is required you do awake your faith. Then all stand still ... Music, awake her; strike! ‘Tis time; descend; be stone no more; approach; Strike all that look upon with marvel. Come, I’ll fill your grave up: stir, nay, come away, bequeath to death your numbness, for from him dear life redeems you.'
