The Great Creator, the creation and His Creatures
There are many books written about religion. In The Great Creator, The Creation And His Creatures by Rony Michel Joseph, the author addresses Christianity through Bible scriptures, its interpretation of Christianity and events, and its effects on different aspects of our daily lives. Through Bible, verses, prose and poetry, Joseph encourages readers to look into themselves and their actions, as well as look at what they can or should be doing to move toward accepting God’s love fully and leading a life that will hopefully result in eternal life.
The Great Creator, The Creation And His Creatures is a unique book on religion because it is written in many different ways. In some parts, Joseph quotes from the Bible. In other sections he writes in prose. However, for much of the book, he writes in poetry that allows for different reactions from readers. He has a distinct message about eternal life in his book, and by writing much of his book as poetry his message comes across as more of his delivery of his ideas as opposed to delivering his thoughts and ideas in a dry and lecture-like format. This book is very unique because where most books on religion have to be read with extreme concentration and purpose, Joseph writes truly from the heart and the result is a book that should be read to inform and enjoy, not overthink. While his form of poetry’s rhythm can be hard to follow at times, I found that if you simply sit back and just read what he has written you will understand the point he is trying to get across. Perhaps my favorite part of this book was the collection of prayers he provides at the end. While not the formal prayers that many Christians are used to, these prayers offer a way for readers who may or may not be Christian to find a way to begin to talk to God.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
