About the Book

If I had the whole world in my hand I would plan To save my world from sinking sands It would not be enough Just to cup them And love them Disrupt them, their flesh, and again I would show them how I won’t bow Out of the fight for their lives I can’t lie To my child I won’t leave them in bile, be they vile JESUS – RECONCILE… The Book of Verses is the fourth book written by Pastor Joffrey B. Hooks. In it , he poetically worships God, the Creator of Heaven and Earth; Jesus, the Messiah and Saviour of all mankind; and the Holy Spirit, the Executor of God’s covenant with man. For every lover of poetry, this is a volume worth owning. For everyone saved by God’s precious grace, it is a celebration with which you can connect and be inspired and edified.
