Echezonachukwu Nduka’s sophomore poetry collection, Waterman, situates itself in enchanting musicality while exploring themes on innocence, memory, religion, music, and the complex corridors of political history. In Waterman, the metaphysical is interspersed with the quotidian, the philosophical, leaving us with timeless writing that takes readers on a journey of imagination and the rediscovery of humanity in all its glories and shortcomings.
A concert pianist of Nigerian origin, Nduka’s Waterman is symphonic, reflective, evocative, yet damning. This book is, in many ways, a testament to how the author views the world through the lens of music.
This collection, which Ken Medema calls poetry of “beautiful honesty, elegantly expressed struggle, and passionate devotion to God” (from the Foreword), presents biblical and personal images from a forty-year spiritual journey. Accompanied by suggested scripture references to enhance them as a meditation tool, Warmth in the Brilliant Darkness endeavours to cheer the heart, challenge the mind, and enrich the soul.
Mark Aikins believes that honest seekers will admit a hunger to understand what lies beneath the “ocean’s surface” upon which we are sailing. His commitment to Christ and love of language have resulted in poems that explore the implications of spiritual birth, battle, and renewal on the life of the individual.
In a world where the glare of much purported spiritual “light” often obscures the Gospel’s genuine message, Aikins seeks to reflect the “warmth” that the Jesus of history and revelation offers to modern-day sinners who will hear and believe.
Mark Aikins’ upbringing and early Christian training in upstate New York, and his Bible and music studies in Philadelphia, led him into a twenty-year career as singer and church music director, and a writing urge that began in 1977. Take off “He resides with his wife and two children in northern Indiana. My family and I settled in northern Indiana. My goal in writing is to cheer the heart, challenge the soul, and glorify Jesus Christ, my Lord and Redeemer.

Osondu vows to protect his mother and sister, but his resolve comes with a costly price. Will he be ready to pay the price?
