Thirty-five years in the making, Blood from Angels' Wings is a collection of poetry that spans across the entire author's life, starting as a 13 year-old boy writing The Gift to a young college student writing The Man on the Tree to a middle-aged man writing The Voyage. The poet, Brother Tom, is a third order discalced Carmelite monk so most of these works are, of course, very spiritual in nature. People wanting a spiritual journey will discover one in the poems and pictures found within these pages. But, truly, this book was written for the non-believer. From the anger found in The Master Key to the incessant prodding of The Fifth Station to the call to arms of Battle Rap, this book was written with the aspiration of guiding people who hate religion back to God. If the church has ever hurt you, then, on behalf of the church, I am sorry. Chapels are filled with many people, some of them good, some of them not so good, and some of them constipated. But if you stay away because of some bad people, then the bad guys will win. Don't let that happen. Please, return to Jesus. He will absolutely accept you with Open Arms.
