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
