It is Ian J. Robert's desire that his collection of poems and songs not only please the heart of God, but encourage His people in their walk of faith, causing readers to look toward heaven and point the unsaved to knowledge of the risen Savior. I skipped over this book the first time I saw it in order to choose a fictional book to read just for fun, although I felt, at the time, like I should read it. When I came across it the second time and saw that there were no reviews written, I knew it was time for me to read it. I did like the drawing on the cover tremendously. Standing high up on a rock (The Rock) (in a safe place), with face in the sun (The Son) over looking the lowlands (hard times or life in general). It seemed very encouraging and inviting. My first thought was to wonder why it was only available as an ebook. I felt like it should have been available in print, in order to be properly used as a devotional or to share a poem or song with others. After reading it on my iphone, my opinion did not change. Some of the lines did not fit the page, so I found myself backing up to figure out how the verse should read. They were more like fragmented sentences. It did seem somewhat helpful to read them aloud. Although I enjoy poetry and music, this collection did not particularly move me, although it did inspire my own creative bent. The poems and songs I enjoyed the most were Be Happy in Jesus, Forever With the Lord, God is Love, Gospel Truth, Resurrection Day, Sweet Love of Jesus and My Belov'd Lord. It is quite evident that Ian has a heart for God and that he deeply desires to please Him. I did find myself feeling like I had already read a particular line or phrase before. There was a consistent theme throughout the book, but within the poetry seemed a bit redundant. It seemed to be necessary to read them aloud. I definitely think it would have been helpful to have been able to view the songs as written out on musical score in order to get a sense of the rhythm and melody.Thank you Book Look Bloggers for providing a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my review.
