Traveling to the Holy City is presented in two parts; each about the agony and joy that accompanies every person’s journey to a love relationship with Jesus. Part One is personal and interprets my own travel to a spirit-filled life. Part Two is the journey of Christina Bell Cantor, the protagonist of my unpublished book based on John Bunyan’s classic allegory The Pilgrim’s Progress.
My interest in poetry became important to me because of my familiarity with the Bible. Biblical writers descended into their inner souls to reveal grief and rejection, their spirits thus reached crescendos of celebration over the Living God through their poetic phrases.
