After 9/11, Americans were forced to recognize that all was not right with the world. But in the ensuing years, much of the country has been lulled back to sleep, oblivious of the greed and hatred that linger-and grow strong. Poet Alexander Bryan Davis has witnessed many dark times in his nearly seventy years on this planet and knows his fair share of war, having served in Vietnam. In an effort to do his part to rid the world of evil, he chooses the hard road of a watchman and offers earnest warnings through his poems in the hope that people will repent and return to God. Gritty and genuine, "Apocalyptic Poetry" never shies away from the truth that we are in grave danger. But though it may be too late to stop the doom that is coming, this collection of visionary verse still grasps the possibility that healing and wholeness may be realized through the love and grace of God: "I could let these thoughts end on a note of despair, but when they went to His tomb, our Lord was not there."
