I was overpowered by the words and life of Jesus Christ and became fanatically drawn to him.
Santa Cruz, Trinidad and Tobago (PRWEB) May 10, 2013
Follow the journey of a born-again believer through a collection of evocative poetry in “The Entrant: An Anthology of Poems” (published by Trafford Publishing), by Ronald L. Nanton.
Divided into six sections, “The Entrant” tackles each stage of Nanton’s life, beginning with his childhood in Trinidad. At age 15, his family briefly relocated to Canada, where he attended school in Ottawa before returning to Port-of-Spain to enroll in Catholic secondary school. It was around this time that Nanton had a life-changing, spiritual awakening. “I was overpowered by the words and life of Jesus Christ and became fanatically drawn to him,” the author recalls.
After secondary school, Nanton set forth to attend a seminary and found a suitable one to study at. The Entrant's title poem, featured below in excerpt, uses archetypal imagery as it tells a story both deeply personal to the author and speaks to anyone on a path toward higher spiritual fulfillment:
to altar on steps of mind
yields a sacrifice:
His spirit prostrate, broken
Beyond the altar
refrains pan the wide elevation
of the soul
where answered calls fill desolate pews
Other subject matter in “The Entrant” focuses on the Black Power movement of the 1970s and Nanton’s relationship with his parents. Discover more in this unique collection, which a BlueInk reviewer calls, “… a powerful and evocative book, well worth the time and effort it takes to climb a few of its steeper, more difficult hills.”
