    To see with new eyes...

    A blinding collection of poems of the Incarnation. Those nebulous thoughts of who Christ is are finally brought together as you read this riveting selection of poetry about the man, our God, Jesus Christ. Various styles and unknown authors make this a hidden jewel that few find. Highly recommended to those who love poetry and those who love Jesus.
