NEW BOOK MINISTERS TO READERS
” . . . creative energy evidenced through every line . . .” – Dr. P.T. Mammen
San Jose, California – Do you want to read Christian poetry that actually rhymes, and prayerfully will help you “rally ’round – a little closer to Heaven?”
Charles B. Mayes, M.A., a community volunteer, including being a Director of Media Relations, has released his first book, A New Year Resolution and Other Poems (including The Missionaries), in a chapbook format, through his own Christian Poetry Publishing, with a release date of December 1, 2011.
Mayes’ goal is to inspire the reader to move closer to God. Twenty-two poems include Christmas, New Year’s, and Easter verse, as well as plenty of devotional insight, and encouragement for Christian service. “My Bible Is My File Cabinet” is a humorous piece that reveals a “problem” of all too many.
The main aim is that the reader not only feels, but actually experiences God’s power in their life. It’s geared especially to Christians who need a boost in their walk with the Lord, and also to those seeking to learn more about the Christian life.
In his foreword, Dr. P.T. Mammen, Senior Pastor of International Christian Center San Jose, reveals that, “These poems evoke a sense of pure love for God, nature, and those around us. The reader is invited to enter into a unique thought process to appreciate everyday occurrences in life in perspective of time and eternity.”
Charles B. Mayes is a freelance writer living in San Jose, CA. He’s written for the Christian Standard, Northridger, CCC Caller, radio, TV, and websites. Mayes grew up in Muskogee, OK, and was graduated from Ozark Christian College Joplin, MO; California State University at Northridge; and Bethany University, Scotts Valley, CA, where he was also employed.
