Matt Schur

Author & Poet

Imperfectly Perfect

Imperfectly Perfect Book Cover

“From Betty White’s death to the assault on Kyiv, from atonement theory to Ahmaud Arbery’s murder, Matt Schur exposes a raw Christian heart through poetry, parable, and story. The broad scope and hard wrestling of his Christian imagination have enriched my own.”
—Dr. Greg Carey, Lancaster Theological Seminary, author of Death, the End of History, and Beyond: Eschatology in the Bible

"Matt Schur's writing is haunting and honest and holy. He writes with refreshing candor about the sharp edges of life, and does so with both grace and truth—a tricky balance to strike. I gasped aloud at several pieces in this collection, and will be buying a hard copy or a dozen as soon as I can get my hands on them. The way he writes about God and humanity gives me hope for both.”
—Meagan Ruby Wagner, poet, author of Honeysuckle

“Faith and doubt belong together. In poetry, meditations, and hymn texts, Matt Schur accompanies skeptics, doubters, and those on the edge. His creative vision points to Jesus as companion on the winding road. We are invited to journey along in love and hope.”
—Craig L. Nessan, Wartburg Theological Seminary, author of Free in Deed: The Heart of Lutheran Ethics

Yes, Amazon is easy and quick, and my books are available there. However, I encourage you to buy my books from your (or my!) local, independently-owned bookstore.

They’re the ones willing to carry local authors’ books on their shelves, host public readings, and act as a community cultural touchstone. Support independent bookstores to help your favorite authors succeed!
