Amy Jean effectively combines the use of religious and existential imagery in her essays and poetry. Complemented by the brilliant illustrations of Eric Savage, her story is about the aesthetics of applied faith in experience—her idea of how a memoir should be written. The Kingdom Has Arrived Volume 1 Foundations is an emotional and spiritual construct designed to touch the hearts of its intended audience and to renew faith in their lives. Her poems have varied formats and structures with respect to aesthetic innovation, which is typical of a modernist writer. Her supernatural experiences with the divine may appear ungrounded, but she writes it as it is, and she doesn’t fear reader disagreement. This memoir is an unexpected but confident piece of work."
Author’s new book “The Kingdom Has Arrived Volume 1 Foundations” receives a warm literary welcome.
A compilation of poetry and prose quaintly detail the groundwork laid during her childhood and early years, leading to a miraculous faith journey and supernatural encounters. Jean takes the reader along on her pilgrimage - one driven by a passion that has not galvanized humanity for thousands of years, a journey that leads to self-discovery and a deeper understanding of the universe and the presence of God's Kingdom now.
Jean shares personal details of her mystical and otherworld encounters, including physical manifestations, visions, locutions, prophetic dreams, and apparitions. Through Scripture, she beings to uncover her life events woven through time, and she discovers her life is written in Biblical history. Charming images accompany events, bringing her story captivatingly to life for the reader.
In sharing her story, Jean aspires to bring light to a world that seems to be in a state of demise. With so much violence, political unrest, bullying, sickness, and death in the news, many are struggling to find joy. The hectic pace of life gears many toward building financial wealth, and coupled with the adversity in the news, many worldwide are left without hope. We, as a society, are trudging through our day, going through the motions, and forgetting to stop and smell the roses--embrace life, chase passion, and feel joy.
