Publishers Description Poems The poems in this volume are quite varied in theme and purpose. Readers can find solace or healing, encouragement, joy in The Lord, laughter, common feelings about loved ones, or perhaps special insights into Christian thinking that might serve to bring someone into or back into a Biblical worldview. Many who have begun to doubt or to encounter criticism of Christianity in today's world they cannot defend against, and perhaps do not have the patience to read apologetic discourses, may find that poetry can speak to their hearts when pure logic does not in an age of relativism, naturalism, secular humanism, post-modernism, and terrorism. Taken as a whole, one gets the sense that God's Love, Sovereignty, Majesty, Truth and Grace are visible in His Creation, and that humankind need to embrace Him, accept Christ, and dedicate ourselves to obeying, glorifying, and serving Him as long as we live. Walter Newport is a retired professor of language and culture who has spent nearly thirty years in four widely diverse areas of the world - in the USA, Cuba, Spain, and Japan. Dr. Newport was the first non-Japanese professor ever hired by Ishikawa Prefecture in Japan, after having been a founding member of an international center in Toyama Prefecture. He has also been an active Christian in parts of the world in which Christians are a minority, supporting an orphanage in the Philippines, and has helped refugees from the recent Ethiopian-Eritrean war in Africa. He enjoys opera and classical music, theology, mountain hiking, and weight lifting, belongs to the International Society of Poets, and has received numerous awards for his poetry. He now lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
