Loaves and Kisses consists of devotional poetry, in addition to speculative short stories with a tinge of gospel. There are psalms, word pictures, and retellings of characters in the Bible in the first thirty poems.
The last three stories in the book are:
- “The Meteor Book” describes two people on another planet who discover a mysterious book inside a meteorite and have quite a time deciphering what it means.
- “Every Tree Is A Library” tells of a world where pain is a currency that’s exchanged in blows and is banked in pain banks.
- “Gelp The Whelp” offers the remarkable adventures of a man in the future who works in a frozen food factory.
The author wrote this book to express the message of the gospel in imaginative ways that everyone can understand and appreciate.
