This is the latest work by Stan Daneman, whose previous e-book, From My Hilltop: A Living History of South Africa, has been very well received.
This is Stan’s third book of poetry – the previous two were Goodnight Kiss and Other Poems (1986) and Poems, Prayers and Promises (2002). His poems are compassionate and touch the soul of the readers. The poems are intended to bring new hope and belief in the busy world of today.
“This collection of twenty-six short, often introspective and thoughtful but always probing poems explores humanity’s relationship with the divine. Unashamedly based in Christian theology, all of the poems seek to apply that theology to life in a practical way.
Most of the poems are written in free verse, although two of the poems in the collection adopt a more traditional rhyming scheme. Stan Daneman can coin a neat turn of phrase – such as calling a rainbow a ‘heavenly hoop of hope’. He offers insights that can be both comforting and challenging, thoughtful and thought-provoking – such as likening the impressive effect of light shining through a stained glass window with our attempts to allow light to shine through our stained lives.
These poems are an appeal to the soul as much as an appeal to the intellect and they appear to represent a genuine soul-searching quest after inner truth. As such, their insights should enlighten and inspire, as well as challenge and provoke, all those who want to develop the spiritual side of their lives.”
