There is life, not death, in my scabbard. Helen Murray's Poetry with Punch: For the Urgency of the Hour is anything but standard Christian poetry. These compelling poems truly pack a punch, offering a coltish perspective with instructional undertones. Expect sweet meditations? Try again. Do you anticipate a counter perspective? You're getting warmer. Will your 'gentle Jesus meek and mild' expectation be satisfied? Go home. Do you mean these are fighting words? You had better believe it. Through her poetry, Murray seeks to combat the way worldly thinking has overtaken Christian communities. Over the years, she's observed how churches often do not reflect the glory of God in power and truth. Poetry with a Punch is meant to bring Christians back to reality, back to the exquisite culture which clearly distinguishes people of faith from those of the gentile world. These poems have application in every field of Christian endeavour and are well suited for education, counseling, the home group, the sermon, or the coffee table. Prepare to rethink your faith, discover a playful provocation (in the best sense), and chuckle at a slice of incisive raillery. Poetry with Punch will press you toward the exit door of your dangerous comfort zone and advance you into an extraordinary life, where truth establishes freedom and people, through the exuberant wisdom of the Spirit of Truth, exceed all limitations.show more
