‘in moments like these’.
This is the ‘cheap’ one – Unlike Keith’s previous books this book features poetry without associated photos. A paperback size book, apart from some general poems it also contains an updated version of ‘a journey through Easter’*, with additional poems. Link to view the book
what people say about the book:
All these fall within the range of human emotions which each of us may at some time experience. If we are spared the most cruel emotions, we may find it difficult to identify with and support those who do confront them. For those who are faced with extreme events, the story of Christ’s Passion provides an opportunity to know that they are not alone, or freakish. Another has been there before.
This is a personal journey through the events and responsibilities of Easter. Some is narrative, some an emotional response to the awesome sacrifice of the season. If the Holy Week story is to support and speak to those on the edge of organised church life, those at many points on the journey facing the range of events and emotions which we all encounter and trying to make sense of them, then we must be both creative and courageous in what we offer. This sequence of poems and pictures might be offered as a reflection on the events of Holy Week and the range of emotions which is common to us all.”

“Mr. Wallis shows us once again his mastery of the free-verse form of poetry, and paints pictures with his words on the canvases of our very souls. Keith considers himself a cross between Dylan Thomas and King David of the Psalms. Few poets can live up to such comparison, but Keith does so and much more”. PERPETUAL MAGAZINE
