An Evening with Drew Jackson

September 15th

But God speaks through wombs, birthing prophetic utterances. . . . Enough of this unbelieving religion that masquerades as faith. Divine favor is placed on what we have disgraced. 
In God Speaks Through Wombs, Drew Jackson explores the first eight chapters of Luke's Gospel in a new poetic register. These are declarative poems, faithfully proclaiming the gospel story in all its liberative power. Here the gospel is the fresh words / that speak of / things impossible. From the Magnificat (That girl can sing . . . She has a voice / That can shatter shackles) to the baptism of Christ (I stepped in / Committing insurrection), this collection helps us hear the hum of deliverance--against all hope--that's been in the gospel all along.


DREW JACKSON is a poet and the author of God Speaks Through Wombs. He is also the pastor of Hope East Village and serves as president of Pax, a justice and peacemaking organization. Drew and his wife, Genay, live in New York City with their twin daughters, Zora and Suhaila.
