There is not a single poem in Mike Bonikowsky’s ‘Red Stuff’ that I did not love. Every word is a word of lament, praise, worship, connection, question, awe of and too God.


“Sing to the Lord, all ye mid-restoration”

– From Invocation –


His gift is in highlighting the pain of every day, be it through family life, or work. But not simply highlighting, he lays it at the feet of the cross and raises the lantern he keeps lit with words in readiness for the coming bridegroom.
I was so blessed while being humbled while reading these words.

Mary Grace van der Kroef
