Book Giveaway – Drew Jackson – Touch the Earth -Poems [5 winners]

We’re excited to run this giveaway of FIVE copies of this great new book:

Touch the Earth:
Poems on The Way

by Drew Jackson

Paperback: IVP, 2023


Book Description:
Gather it from memory.
Let it touch the earth.

In Touch the Earth, Drew Jackson continues the project he began in God Speaks Through Wombs, reflecting on the Gospel of Luke through poetry. Touch the Earth picks up in chapter nine and continues through the end of Luke’s Gospel. Part protest poetry, part biblical commentary, Jackson presents the gospel story in all its liberative power. Here the gospel is the “fresh words / that speak of / things impossible.”

From the feeding of the multitude (“The best hosts always provide / take home containers”) to the resurrection of Jesus (“the belly of mother Earth / is, indeed, a womb . . . the humus of life is where we become fully human”), this collection helps us hear the hum of deliverance―against all hope―that’s been in the gospel all along.
