Item description for Urban Verses by Alexis Spencer-Byers...

"Urban Verses" is the fruit of ten years of one California-born, Amherst-educated white-Asian woman's life, work, and worship in predominantly African-American west Jackson, Mississippi. What began as a short-term urban ministry "project" turned into a call to community and the building of a new life alongside the people of Jackson's Voice of Calvary Fellowship. "Urban Verses" explores in poetry and fiction such topics as inner-city living, reconciliation, parenthood, love, theology, and more. Retellings of biblical stories, tributes to present-day heroes, laments about crime, musings about identity and relationships--whatever the subject, each vignette offers a contemplative glimpse into the mind and heart of a young woman of faith seeking to understand and live out God's deep concern for the city, for the poor, and for reconciliation.

Reviews - What do customers think about Urban Verses?

Honest and Sincere  Feb 3, 2006
Alexis' writing comes from the heart, she shares her thoughts, feelings and experiences openly. She's not afraid to challenge, or be challenged! Here verses are a blessing and an encouragement!
Powerful, Lyrical  Jan 11, 2006
From the first words, I wanted to know so much about this woman who chose to devote herself to West Jackson, Mississippi. Her poems and pieces were very compelling. She is living an American life that everyone should know about, whether they are religious or not. I recommend this book for anyone who struggles to make change in the world.
