Book Description

24 Oct 2013 Poetry
'…these poems … illuminate [Bible stories] in a way that is relevant and applicable to the life of faith today.' Revd Dr Sandy Roger - Former Principal of Faith Mission Bible College '…a refreshing and uplifting light to familiar and well-loved Bible stories…' Valerie Sim - Local Schools Worker, Scripture Union Scotland So many heroes of the faith, So many tales to tell, Of Gideon, David, Samson, Jephthah and Samuel. So many more who suffered wrongs, Tortured, friendless, homeless, Turned despair to advantage, Though to the world seemed powerless. Are these just tales from history? Of days of valour gone? Or do they speak of greater things, God intended for each one? Adele Pilkington's poems take us on a biblical journey, visiting heroes of the faith and learning from their lives. Each one has a message to share with us today. True heroes do not require great skill or strength, but are those who simply trust in God and act upon His promises.

Product Description

Review

Adele Pilkington's book includes a delightful collection of creative poetry, inspired by the many men and women of faith in the Old Testament referred to in the book of Hebrews. This is an inspirational reflection on how we all need faith to believe that God has a purpose for our lives, however insignificant we deem them to be. It is beautifully illustrated with memorable poems, describing Bible verses which we might know but fail to apply to ourselves. --Fiona Castle OBE, International Christian Speaker and Author

There is a simplicity about these poems that is rather deceptive. Read each one with the relevant biblical story to hand and you find they do more than re-tell the story surrounding each character; they illuminate it in a way that is relevant and applicable to the life of faith today. --Revd Dr Sandy Roger, Former Principal of Faith Mission Bible College, Minister at Coatbridge Middle Church

These poems bring a refreshing and uplifting light to familiar and well-loved Bible stories. Looking beyond the basic narrative, they draw the reader in to reflect upon the individuals at the heart of each account and challenge us as we read how they lived out their faith. --Valerie Sim, Local Schools Worker, Scripture Union Scotland

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Gem 5 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback
This book of poetry explores biblical characters with clarity and insight, describing aspects of human personalities that we will all recognize. As the author connects these characters with their Creator, we are gifted with an added dimension as we see how ordinary lives are lived and used for extraordinary purposes when fixed on God. The language and feel of the poetry flows with a humble assurance that is both strengthening and grounding. A wonderful book filled with pearls of wisdom and truth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Faith in His future 30 Dec 2013
By DP
Format:Paperback
Adele's poetry book entitled "Faith in His Future" is like a casket of jewels. Each gem sparkles with its own unique light illuminating a fresh aspect of faith in the Biblical character under review.
It is not easy to describe the elusive quality of faith, but Adele has expertly accomplished this by poetically analysing the events in the lives of various Scriptural personalities. Each poem is rooted in Biblical authority and is expressed in spiritual simplicity.
Adele's detailed knowledge of the Bible teaches vital truth with clarity in each one of her God-honouring poems.

Rev.Frank Parker, Author and Bible Teacher.
