Denver, CO, June 25, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- For author David J. Shrewsbury, good “horse sense” means a life lived through the principles taught in the Bible. Thus his latest work, Horse Sense: Insight for Today’s World, brings to the world of literature a volume of poetry that is heartfelt, humorous, political, and “miraculous”—poems born of the heart’s experience and inspired by biblical teachings. “I write about God’s Love,” he says, “and the possibilities of a wonderful world by and through the Word of God. Horse Sense: Insight for Today’s World shows that God through His Spirit is a reality in our existence.”
Shrewsbury was a single parent and the father of two young boys when he was diagnosed with stage four (end stage) cirrhosis of the liver. While going through a workup for a liver transplant, doctors decided that he would never survive surgery due to a heart blockage and poor health. Shrewsbury was given six months to a year to live and told to put his affairs in order. “This brought me to my knees day and night,” he says, “trying everything I had learned in the Bible to get God’s attention to extend my life.”
Nine years later, Shrewsbury is living proof of the redemptive power of faith. “We can never tell or convince God to give us a miracle,” he says, “but I want you to know that I am a true receiver of one. For the first time in thirty years I have near normal blood values, liver enzymes normal, no heart problems, and am completely off of heart medication. I have gone from sitting in a chair to playing golf, bowling, and motorcycle riding with my sons. I am now remarried. I am like Job in the Bible who had everything taken away and then restored to him by God.”
David J. Shrewsbury’s first book Getting A Miracle – Light Covering Darkness won the “Best Unique Devotional 2006” award. Shrewsbury, who is in the top five poets on the World of Poets website, recently won the best reviewer award. His poem “Creatvolution” introduces the workbook for the Creation Seminar Video Series of creation scientist Russ Miller. Shrewsbury’s poems can be found in a number of published anthologies, including God’s Rainbow Book, which was given to the survivors of Hurricane Katrina. He is also listed as a Poet Laureate on Poets.com.
Praise for Horse Sense: Insight for Today’s World –
