Description : "Poetic Parables, Songs and Poems from an imperfect pen" is the first attempt at publishing for the author/composer, Vickie L. Detert. With the Lord and his gifts as inspiration, there are many more works waiting their turn to be shared. Their message of faith, forgiveness, strength, hope and love have been blessings to Miss Detert and others. Now, her prayer is to share them with as many as God is willing and she trusts He will guide them through each and every word. An added bonus to the music portion of this book is that each song is presented twice. The first presentation is as melody, chords and lyrics. The second is with a piano accompaniment. In most of the later, you will also find the pieces are written in a slightly lower key, thus giving the singers a choice of range. Miss Vickie L. Detert has been a life-long Christian who has, as most Christians, faced many of life's challenges with her God-given faith being the answer, the hope and the strength she has needed. As far back as she can remember, music and faith have walked hand in hand and so despite being convinced at a young age that writing was not one of her gifts, it was not surprising that in 1978 she began writing and composing pieces reflective of her faith. As a music teacher and church musician, Miss Detert has shared much of her writings with friends, family and local congregations. Now, she hopes the Lord will use this book to reach out and bless all of those who are moved to open it's cover and look within. Her wish is that God use her work to bring others closer to Him as it has done for her.

Description : A work of a genius or madman? I'll leave that for you to decide. I was diagnosed with schizophrenia before God was born and have been writing ever since! I've read many self-help books in the past but when I typed up my works from 2001-2003 I realised I already knew what was in them before I'd even read them! So maybe I'm not a Wayne Dyer or Neale Donald Walsch but this is probably as good and who knows you may even like it. But please don't read this book whilst driving or operating heavy machinery and by the way if you suffer from a mental diagnosis please consult your doctor before reading. Thank you.
Description : Review of Book The first time I ever read Chad's Christian poetry, I was astounded. It was illuminating and alive. His poetry grabs onto you and sinks deep within, capturing the very essence of the soul. Understanding the simplicity of his poetry, yet the depth of it on a spiritual level, is fascinating. This statement conveys only a shadow of him. The heart of Chad Thieman can only be found in "101 Treasurable Poems of Faith, Hope, and Love." - Curtis Neil Curtis and I first met while working together at the Blockade-Runner Beach Resort, on Wrightsville Beach. He came to me and told me that he had read some of my work. He said that he would help me get published and ever since, we have worked together. Curtis is my investment partner and promotional manager. - Chad The book you are holding in your hands is a treasure chest of poetry, proverbs, and parables that can be used to reach many hearts. Every poem has a Bible verse prescribed to it, for further study and research on the topic discussed within the piece. This book is a great tool which can be used in adult Bible studies, youth groups, church retreats as well as for personal meditation and reflection.
Description : David Stern shows how the parable or mashal - the most distinctive type of narrative in midrash - was composed, how its symbolism works, and how it serves to convey the ideological convictions of the rabbis. He describes its relation to similar tales in other literatures, including the parables of Jesus in the New Testament and kabbalistic parables. Through its innovative approach to midrash, this study reaches far beyond its particular subject, and should appeal to all readers interested in narrative and religion.
