Proverbably Speaking is a book of proverb parables showing comparisons which blend ancient theological teaching with modern culture. A bold book, challenging political correctness, stereotypical thinking and what is thought to be normal. Proverbably Speaking makes the reader reassess their previous thinking and to take a look inside of themselves. Most importantly, Proverbably Speaking is a teaching poetry book with a style unique to the author. This book has a Middle Eastern flavor with rich experiences and soul-stirring depth.

Proverbably Speaking is daunting from the very cover, starting off with a contemplative photo of the troubled waters of Northern Neck, Virginia, with a fort overlooking the shore. The introduction describes to you, the reader, the author’s unique proverbial style of writing parables. The first story is a song to settle the human soul and to confuse and unease the spirits. From the very onset the book is a world view versus spiritual view. Throughout the book a reoccurring theme surfaces, to emphasize what appears large today but really is not. It is miniscule in comparison to eternal rewards. The book consistently delivers parables that show vast differences and role reversals, in which the small, underdeveloped and downtrodden rise and defeat the giant; to stand atop the mountain.

This book provides a venue for readers to rediscover an ancient proverbial style of writing that had seemed to be once lost; but has now been found and complimented. A style referred to by the author as run-on poetry, which has been uncovered and released. This fourth and latest book confirms the limitless range of the author. He started off in his first book with sixties style romance and love poems. He culminates here in this book Proverbably Speaking with philosophical theology.
