Drawing on images of both life as a poor black youth and adult life as a gay black male, Touching A Dead Man stuns readers with it's raw --and rare-- look at life at it's best and worst. The book paints moving vivid pictures of a struggle too strong to survive, yet shows the reader how the power of Christ works to transform damaged humanity.
Touching A Dead Man touches a nerve with the black church and it's shaky dance with homosexuality in an explosive narrative of truth and challenge drawn from the Biblical story of a dead man, Lazarus.
