The author Robert S. Brooks of Thirty Pieces of Silver implements a sincere approach to understanding God’s word. A thorough examination of God’s loving plan and true intent permeates his poems. Mr. Brooks utilizes marginal bible references and other manual resources to enhance discovery and documentation for the reader. For example, the original King James Bible warns of the arduous task of translation and transliteration. Those English scribes admitted they could not match numerous words found in the manuscripts. The Hebraic language only has twenty-two letters. The Greek, Aramaic, and Chaldean manuscripts present similar problems. These poems are an attempt to present God’s intent unencumbered by man’s traditions, ritual dogma, false prophecy, vain imaginations, or divinations.
