From the Back Cover of Seeing Through Blindness:
Seeing through Blindness is a memoir written in the form of a narrative poem that reads like a novel. It will be a blessing to anyone who has ever struggled with God, or a drug addiction, or a disability. I have battled with all three and through God’s grace have been victorious. The topics I have written about in my book are raw and from the heart. And, so, from an emotional perspective, Seeing through Blindness drew me out of my comfort zone, but, at the same time, it needed to be written and was cathartic. So, with poetry as my shovel, I dug deeply into my past and unearthed this casket of memories that lied buried for years. It covers a period in my life, from ages 11 to 22, which gives readers a glimpse into one of the most painful and defining phases of my life. I opened up this peephole into my past to show who I was before I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ. I hope the person who materializes through these pages might become a torch to help guide someone from out of darkness and toward hope. And though only a sliver of my eyesight remains, I am still Seeing through Blindness by the Light of Jesus, my Lord.
From the Back Cover of Leaves of Prophecy:
As you read Leaves of Prophecy, you will see the events in the headlines unfolding in the Middle East and across the globe that scripture had foretold thousands of years ago. As you witness this turmoil, remember that Jesus loves you and you need Him for the same reason we all do, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23). Where we will spend eternity, either in heaven or in hell depends on who we believe Jesus–or isn’t. Jesus said, ” I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live” (John 11:25). Because God loves us, He promises that “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Romans 10:13). If you would like to call on the name of the Lord, and know for certain that you have a place in heaven with Jesus for all eternity, than repent from your sin and sincerely pray this prayer, “I have sinned against you, Lord, and need forgiveness. Please forgive me of my sins and come into my life. I confess with my mouth that you, Jesus, are Lord. I believe in my heart that you died on the cross for my sins and that God, Your Father, raised you from the dead. I call on You, Jesus, for eternal life. Help me, by your kindness, to turn from my sin and live for you. Amen!
From the Back Cover of Sonnets for Messiah:
Throughout the centuries, writers have penned volumes in prose on the subject of Messianic prophecy, but only a handful have written books on this fascinating subject entirely in poetry. Sine most of the prophets and scribes of Israel wrote their divine revelation concerning Messianic prophecy in Hebrew poetry, a modern-day collection of poems that concentrate on how Jesus fulfilled some of these prophecies would be a valuable resource for any twenty-fist-century school, church, or bookstore. Charles Spurgeon, the famous nineteenth-century British preacher, once asserted that “The Bible is like a lion, it needs no defense; let it out of its cage, and it will defend itself.” The cage door is now ajar! Sonnets for Messiah consists of one hundred sonnets that show how God’s Son, Jesus Christ, fulfilled one hundred Messianic prophecies from Old-Testament Scripture. A sonnet is a fourteen-line poem that means “little song.” Sonnets for Messiah uses three distinct sonnet forms to mold its themes: The Shakespearean, Spenserian, and Petrarchan. Each style displays its own unique rhyming pattern, and they are structured in such a way as to express ideas concisely. It is exactly this conciseness that many readers find most appealing about the sonnet. A well-crafted sonnet can say as much on the subject in fourteen lines as a book of prose can say in fourteen pages!
From The Back Cover of Some Parables of Christ:
Readers will appreciate the many elements of poetic craft and thematic coherency that pillar Poems On Some Parables of Christ. If you like to read poetry that challenges you to think, this collection was written for you. It pries the Bible from the coffee table, dusts if off and delves into the timeless Parables of God’s Son. The book rewinds us back in time to the first century when Christ, through His Parables, revealed and concealed to the world the truths of His eternal kingdom. Truths that are as relevant and poetic in the twenty-first century as they were in the days when Christ first spoke them. Since the beginning of time, humankind has searched for the answer to this question: What is truth? To answer the question, we must first ask, Who Is Truth? Jesus Christ said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6). So was Jesus a liar, a lunatic? Or is He Lord and “…The Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world” (John 1:29)? Poems On Some Parables Of Christ offers its readers an exploration into the Who and What of the age-old question about truth using poetry as its guide.
