Sharpening the Soul "Poetry gives you a concise and heightened sense of reality," says contemporary poet/author and romantic rationalist Tom Despard. "Here each poem 'wrestles' with just one verse of Scripture to unearth its nugget of truth and flush out deeper layers of meaning- provoking a fresh spiritual response." Winter Wind awakens the imagination in fifty-two weekly Scripture passages set against soul-stirring poetry and timely introspective challenges that will spur you on your journey through the year. Thought provoking, interactive, inspiring! How will an elegy verse my life? An overcomer of struggles and strife? A knower and lover of the Lord? A Word-doer wielding Spirit's sword? Run the race coursing Heaven's track, Run the race as if done, looking back.
