New Poetry Collection Offers Different Perspective of Truth
CLEARFIELD – Seeking and showcasing truth through poetry, songs and sayings, the new book “Truth Poet: Truths of Our Fallen World and Glorious God,” authored by Joshua I. Sykes, delves into truth on various levels — some truth is quite hard and controversial, while much is comforting. The book was published by Inspiring Voices.
Sykes believes truth is an important thing and needs to be shared in any way possible. The truth Sykes is talking about is Jesus.
His book contains poems about real situations and material that many readers may have experienced or know of themselves. The book offers readers a different lens and spurs them on in personal growth.
Sykes wants readers to take away that “Jesus loves you right where you are, no matter who you are. Start to know Him; He is the Truth.”
The book is currently available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
