There are so many believers out there who have fallen through the cracks. They love the Lord Jesus Christ with all of their hearts but they are fed up with organized religion. They have seen through the masks that are being worn today and they will have absolutely nothing to do with it and I do not blame them one bit. Many, who are not only spiritually blind but also politically blind, believe that the kingdom of God and his righteousness will arrive on the backs of donkeys and elephants or fly in on Air Force One. Not so! Not in this life or the life to come will that happen. The kingdom of God will come when God set it in motion in the fullness of his time and not necessarily in our time. A lot of Christians are praying and fasting to twist the arms of God until He takes up their agenda when the real truth is that we have to find out what God's agenda is and where He is raining down His blessings; go and find that cloud and get wet!

The Victorian era produced many famous writers and poets, including Dickens, Thackeray, H.G. Wells and Tennyson. Magazines like The Strand launched famous creations such as Conan Doyles Sherlock Holmes, whose cliff-hanger stories were told in part-works to add to the excitement. The poetry was epic, Tennysons Morte dArthur and The Lady of Shalott tapped into the Pre-Raphaelite style so popular in the art of the day. Russell James has explored the role of the Victorian writer and their genres, from Dickens desire to correct social wrongs and expose poverty to H.G. Wells desire to escape the modern world. The responsibility of the Victorian poet is also revealed from romantic declaration and escapism to heroism and historical commemorations would modern generations know about the Charge of the Light Brigade if Tennyson hadnt immortalized it? Together with A-Zs of writers and poets, this is a must-read book for everyone who loves good writing and wants to discover more.
