Joseph J. Breunig 3rd (1958- ) was born at Dow Air Force Base, in the great State of Maine. He was primarily educated in the Portland School System and received a B.A. in Mathematics from the University of Southern Maine in 1980. As a result of his development work on a personal website for Bunganut Lake, he discovered a talent and love for writing Christian Poetry. Within five years of that revelation, he published his first book in November 2006 with assistance from Amazon.com's CreateSpace. Presently he has nine more manuscripts of poetry in various stages of completion, including a sequel to his title 'Reaching Towards His Unbounded Glory'. On various poetry and social networking sites, more than 80+ poems of his can be found on the Internet. (Please note: Only 25 poems from the book have been placed into the public domain.)
Autographed copies of the book may be obtained directly from this author. Feel free to communicate with him via Amazon.com (or any of the other websites where his writings can be found) for contact information.
It's one thing to put pen to paper and write things, good or bad that move people in one way or another. This book moved me in a positive way. I find it hard to believe that the author wrote these words from his very own psyche. I'm not accusing plagarism, but rather inspiration. Many of the thoughts put to paper had to be, in my mind, divinely inspired. So many things we all need to hear, especially in this point in time. I can only hope that someone will read this and have that "life changing" experience that we call crave. God's thoughts, using man's words. Outstanding !!!
"Reaching Towards His Unbounded Glory" has truly blessed this reader with inspiration. After having just published a Christian book of poetry myself--"Poems On Some Parables Of Christ"--I can appreciate first hand this labor of love that Mr. Breunig has written. I am inspired to know that he is a Christian poet who is unafraid to remind his audience that "The message of Jesus' story didn't end atop Calvary, / as a rotting corpse, left among the ruins of human debris....Unbeknownst to man, the Earth's foundation suffered / a quaking groundswell, / while the Spirit of Christ descended into fiery depths / and snatched the keys of hell." The previous lines were quoted from a poem in Mr. Breunig's collection entitled "Buried." I hope these lines as well as the rest of "Reaching Towards His Unbounded Glory" will lift you up as they have me.

I first read your poems while travelling to see a dear friend who is very sick and losing a battle with cancer. Your words calmed my soul and helped me to focus on God's great glory. I read some of these peoms, after "dog-earing" about two-thirds of them to my friend, and she enjoyed the message as well. Thay are very comforting at any time, but especially so when times are tough and one is looking for a better understanding of "why", and that turning to Him all the time is the best way to live our lives.
