Snatched from the Grave, the fourth of Ngong Kum Ngong’s poetry collections is an exigent clarion call for a re-examination of self in a society bereft of morals, a society heading for destruction and the grave. It is a skilful rendition in arresting and provocative verse of the redemption story; that Man (Christ) laid down His life for mankind. In Snatched from the Grave, like in Walls of Agony, Chants of a Lunatic and Strange Passions, Ngong Kum Ngong writes with an irrefutable, powerful and challenging voice. The poet-persona’s experience foregrounds how a lost and sinful humanity can find redemption through faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The writer is confident that the transformative, humanistic and revolutionary ends of poetry will rouse some souls to awareness and action by the time they read the last poem in this thought-provoking collection.
