Ever read a book intermixed with poetry and prose? Have you ever wanted to gain a more in-depth understanding of purposeful and happy living, while savoring the beauty and power of poetry? Then this unique book by Joseph S. Spence Sr. titled Sincerely Speaking Spiritually is ideal for you. It contains the themes of love, faith, inspiration, purpose, and spirituality.
The structure of the book portrays the strong organizational skills of the writer. The book has 138 pages and five sections. Section One was detailed in several poems about God’s power, love, courage, Christmas, and Easter, amongst several other issues. In Section Two, the author talked about heartfelt and intercessory prayer-poems for children, soldiers, fathers, and all varieties of souls inhabiting the Earth. Section Three focuses on reflective inventory poems about waves of Christian issues. The author used his invented Epulaeryu Poems to describe his travel experiences in Section Four. And the final section contains a glossary of various definitions of forms and styles.
I love the brilliantly crafted “Foreword,” written by another award-winning author about the book. That gave me an overview idea of what to expect from the book. The author’s apt and incredible description of poetic forms in his introduction is remarkably stunning. Innovation does not just shine and glitter in every phase of this book; it is highly refreshing and self-inventory in its entirety. The book touches all aspects of life.
The author’s self-invented writing style is incredibly mind-blowing, as the words flow seamlessly to form the perfect creation of rhymes and rhythms. Several times, I found myself reading a poem repeatedly to savor its beauty and grace. It ignites a fiery thought process that is steeped in purification in the mind of the reader. I love the poem titled “The Perpetual Light” because of how much it speaks to depressed people. Also, I enjoyed the poem about mothers. It portrays mothers as real pillars of strength. I admire how the author beautifully expressed the dynamics of poetry, its perception, and its power.
The world we live in today is diseased and marked by chaos, violence, bloodshed, and many more unpleasant happenings. These are dramatic and unforgettable times for humanity. Sincerely Speaking Spiritually is a unique and outstanding book that depicts hope, preaches God’s love, and encourages tenacity. These reasons, coupled with the fact that the book’s editing is stellar, motivate me to give it a rating of 4 out of 4 stars. Moreover, there is nothing I dislike about the book.
This book deserves a spot on the shelves of masterpieces. Joseph S. Spence Sr. deserves exponential applause for creating a profoundly insightful and highly innovative compilation. The book is characterized by hope, the full embodiment of God’s unfailing and unconditional love, personal inspiration, and possesses the power to breed the universal togetherness.
On a final note, I recommend this book to anyone who is depressed in these bizarre times. Also, lovers of inspirational books will love the book. It has a unique and powerful capability to revitalize the reader. Although it is a Christian book, there is something for everyone.
