1 Review
In this unique collection of poems, a Christian journey is taken into the halls of the soul. Unconventional and experimental poetry is the vehicle used on this trip of soul searching through heartache and final victory in Jesus. The redemption of Jesus' blood is the foundation to the planting of a spiritual vineyard. Once planted, the vineyard has its vines pruned in order to produce the good fruit of the spirit. The book is divided into three parts. First part develops the Christian foundation. The second part highlights the heartache and soul searching or passion of an individual. Finally the third part focuses on the darker side of the spiritual journey. This is not your typical poetry book because sometimes the poetry looks at harsh material like drug abuse, depression, and death.

I give this book 5 stars- fresh- exciting- experimental prose. I read this for a poetry class and I loved it. So deep- a spiritual thread lines through the entire book. A person struggling with their faith in this mad mad world. I would recommend it to anyone.
