Reviewed by Robin Goodfellow for Readers' Favorite The Ocean, The Treehouse, And God by Robert Denis Holewinski is a book of poetry about the musings of a young man who is looking for God. A man named Jonah is visiting Ocean City where he meets two men, both of whom ask if he knew Christ. Afterwards, he visits a bar, where he meets a politician who would like to sleep with him, though he refused. At last he grabs a newspaper that, ironically enough, showed him the differences between good and evil, at the least in the eyes of society. Later on, he goes to find God through his own eyes. I really did enjoy this collection. While the poet concentrates on Jonah, Holewinski shows the various other viewpoints that see Jonah, from a man who wants to go home to the animals living on the beach. It shows that while Jonah is pondering on this faith, life goes on. To them, he’s just another stranger that may make a difference one day, but for now they’ll go on with their lives, never minding what Jonah may think. In a way, it’s like footprints in the sand, fading away with time. I grew up living in a Christian home. And even now, despite my tastes in books, Christianity is still very dear to my heart. So when I picked up this collection, what I thought of immediately was Jonah in the Bible. Jonah was running away from God because he didn’t want to go to the city of Nineveh. However, God continually pursued him, saying that the city, like all others, was important. So I enjoyed the role reversal here in the collection. As such, I would recommend this collection to all audiences.
