           Bound for Glory is an excellent “coffee table” book. It’s colorful pages and calligraphy draws readers in as they experience various poems based on spirituality and African Heritage.
          From the infamous “Let My People Go” to “Come and Go With Me”, you’ll want to read every page of this beautiful poetry written by Timothy Botts and Patrica Raybon.
          This conversation piece comes complete with a scripture index at the end. I recommend this book to anyone who loves poetry, anyone who is an African and Spiritual enthusiast, or anyone who wants to spark inspiring conversation.
