A rich and inspiring collection of poems and images pulled together to inspire and bring about a paradigm shift is what author Sharlie M Pickering offers in her debut book titled The Cutting Edge. With biblically-based pieces meant to create a bridge to spiritual fulfillment, it offers a fresh, creative view of religion that will allow readers to find, maintain and retain humble submission and respect in Christianity.

Motivated by the depth of character within the people of the Bible and the creativeness instilled by God within, Pickering finally accomplished her lifelong dream of writing poetry with Christianity as the central theme. She creatively crafted poems that captured the true meaning of the scriptures while maintaining its bearing to real life, even though the stories in the Bible are from another period of time. These poems are juxtaposed with interesting images to enhance the overall visual appeal and convey additional contextual information. The author modestly invites faith-seekers and poetry lovers alike to take this lyrical journey with her towards peace and fulfillment in Jesus Christ.

This poetry anthology will give a refreshing perspective of Christianity – one that sets it apart from other books of its kind – as readers are exposed to a number of highly motivating passages in the Bible. It further augments their understanding of Christ as they are provoked to have another look at the scared writings to fully grasp its message. With a fine selection of poems that are all at once challenging and entertaining, it is poetically appealing and, at the same time, easy to understand.

“It was tough trying to write poetically but simply,” notes Pickering. “I wanted the poems to be accessible to everybody. Keeping the balance between the messages I wanted to depict yet making it appeal to readers of various ilk was a challenge.” A challenge she took on with success and humility, Sharlie M Pickering’s The Cutting Edge brings inspiration, light and wisdom to the readers through divine poems that will never be threadbare.
