Another Review!

"Wider than the Corners of this World" is a nice collection of very in-your-face Christian poetry and there are no excuses here for what the author, Melanie Kerr, believes - there is joy in the Lord.  Whether it is a quiet time for contemplation (Warrior's Return) or an admonishment of modern society's grab for prestige (Tom's House), the joy in strong fatih can be felt throughout this collection. 

The poetry strives for simplicity and clarity of message over complex structure or thickly veiled allegorical references. If you are looking for some heavyweight poetry for academic study then this is probably not a collection for you.  If you are looking for a collection of little gems you can start your day with or share with the kids at bed time, then you can't go wrong with "Wider than the Corners of this World"
