Review: RAW: A Poetic Journey – Finding a Way from Conflict to Revelation

RAW: A Poetic Journey - Finding a Way from Conflict to RevelationRAW: A Poetic Journey – Finding a Way from Conflict to Revelation by Aimee Maude Sims
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first book published by NuWine Press: The All-Inclusive and LGBT-Affirming Voice of Independent Christian Publishing. It is a collection of poetry from LGBT Christians and friends. The poems are vulnerable and honest. Each poet is on the path to self acceptance – there are housewives who have just separated from their husbands and acknowledged their sexual orientation all the way to long-time lesbian pastor Barbara Caesar-Stephenson, declaring that her place in heaven is so assured that "You can’t crown Him (Jesus) ’til I get there." The poems are encouraging to anyone who’s ever faced internal conflict – and needed some revelation. It’s a journey worth taking.
