Description

Unspoken Confessions wrestles with the issues of sexual addiction, lust, dating (especially how men treat women), and purity.

More than that, it is an attempt at honesty – we all struggle with flaws of our own and with receiving the grace of God.

Unspoken Confessions is a call to find light in the darkness and to allow God to create a new heart in us as we seek to develop healthy relationships.

Through poetry, prose, and photography, these are the unspoken confessions of a man, on behalf of men, for men and those who love us, have loved us, or will one day love us. This is an attempt at honesty. This is an attempt at hope. This is an attempt to find light in the darkness.

“Deep and cutting at times, Vanderlaan takes us beyond the pain to where healing can be found. Unspoken Confessions is stunning in its clarity and depth.”
(BETH-ANNE WHITE)

“Dark and refreshing. I don’t read poetry as a rule, but in this case I’m glad I made an exception.”
(MATTHEW J. LUCIO)

“Thoughtful and artistic, but also packs a punch! This isn’t the stuff you read on greeting cards.”
(JESSICA M. SHIMER)

“Deathly honest!”
(JASON MILLER)

“Each poem is genuine and open, leaving no doubt in your mind that what you’ve just read is from the heart. This book is a calling to a higher standard and a better life – for both men and women.”
(KRISTIN THOMAS)

“Candid and honest about what men struggle with, the temptations they have, and the desire to overcome.”
(AMBER HILL)

    This book was more than an attempt at honesty and hope; it was a success.

    Each poem is genuine and open, leaving no doubt in your mind that what you’ve just read is from the heart. I enjoyed seeing the transformation from being overcome by sin and temptation to a deliberate defiance and a stand against impurity and the power of darkness. But most of all, I think it was inspiring to see in these poems that there is something better than the counterfeit love the world has sold us- a true, pure love that can be reached only by accepting God’s hand and allowing Him to pull us all out of darkness.

    This book is a calling to a higher standard and a better life- for both men and women.

    Reading this book made me see the publishing company’s title in a different light. There is definately a blade in this poetry. It is deep and cutting at times, but Vanderlaan takes us beyond just the pain to where healing can be found, to the balm.

    Unspoken Confessions is not what people might call an “easy read” but it is stunning in its clarity and depth. I have read and reread this book for the great poetry and the message that is in them. It is not often that a poet comes a long and has meaningful and well-written poetry. Vanderlaan has both.

    I am looking forward to getting and reading his next book.
    This book is for guys and girls. Each will gather something different from it, but both will benefit from reading Unspoken Confessions.
