Overview

the secret book of god speaks to the mythic archetypes that reside in all of us in a voice that is soulful, intelligent, and full of imagery. This book is a journey into mythopoetics for academics and laymen alike. Williams writes with an almost eerie insight into human nature that quenches the popular thirst for expressions of longing and intimacy so prevalent in today's Internet-centered society. Many of the poems in the secret book of god possess a healing quality as they reach deep and bring a light to that place in us where self-love is often overshadowed by old wounds. Other poems are soul-searching journeys that begin as a poet's dream and carry us through imagery to the realization of our own personal longings. It is through such imagery that the secret book of god offers readers a glimpse into the human heart that will deepen their own journey into the richness of soul territories they have for too long been too wounded to explore.
