I just finished reading God's Mail Volume 3 by Ron Hardin from God's Mail written by a pastor with a heart to encourage people in the Lord.
To say that this book is a collection of poems is to miss the mark. This book is a collection of poetry that is completely based on the Word of God. In fact the book is laid out so that when you open it, you see a page of Scriptures on the left and the poem on the right.
The page of Bible verse is important because the passages address the topic. The poem is based on these Scriptures.
I loved the page of Scriptures. I felt so encouraged and inspired by them, especially in light of the topic covered. The poems are straight from the author's heart. The idea of each poem is to encourage the reader with spiritual truths.
I felt eager to draw closer to the Lord after I read this book. I could really sense the author's heart to build up the Body of Christ.
Ron tackles a number of difficult issues including divorce, abortion, and everyday life survival. The poems are honest and transparent, not trying to impress, but rather to bless.
I read the books and two of my adult daughters each read portions of the book. They could tell that the author had a heart to impact people with his poem.
The book I read is a softcover edition, but you can also read it on Kindle. You notice that the book I reviewed is God's Mail Volume 3. This, of course means that there are two other volumes: God's Mail Volume 1 and God's Mail Volume 2.
This book would make a great springboard for Bible study. Starting with the page of Scriptures, the reader could read through the passages and spend time in prayer based on the Bible verses. Then it's time to read the poem and find encouragement in life's challenging moments.
You can purchase God's Mail Volume 3 at their website.
It's nice to see a man reaching out to the Body of Christ with his passion for poetry based on Scripture.
