Format: Paperback
As an avid reader of Greg's column, when I heard there would be a book coming out, my first thought was how can they pick out the best of his writings. Either that or it would have to be a big book!!

This book is worth every penny. I have already given away more copies as gifts that I have for myself.

Format: Paperback
"My friend Greg Asimakoupoulos communicates timeless truths through timely rhymes. His little poems pay big dividends-- in wit, insight and inspiration." Michael Medved, Nationally Syndicated Talk Radio Host

"Ever since Greg wrote a poem about my experiences as a child actor in Hollywood, I have been a fan of the Awesome Rev. His simple yet poignant verse has helped me articulate my faith in God and other people." Karolyn Grimes, Zuzu Bailey in "It's a Wonderful Life"

"Rarely does a game go by without my pastor and friend Greg Asimakoupoulos penning a poem that captures what occurred on the field in a fun and creative way. It always brings a smile to my face when I read his weekly Rhymes and Reasons." Mike Holmgren, Former Head Coach of the Seattle Seahawks

"Greg Asimakoupoulos' whimsical way with words will take your mind on a poetic journey. But, you should be warned that his paradoxical pattern of playful words will most often have your mind pondering the pressing issues of our day." - John G. Blumberg, national speaker and author of Silent Alarm: A Parable of Hope for Busy Professionals

"Greg Asimakoupoulos is truly gifted. I don't know of anyone who can reveal an insight related to a current event or moral value with more creativity and wisdom than Greg. He's amazing. He's clever. He's quick. And on top of all his creativity he's thoroughly grounded. Read Rhymes and Reasons and prepare to be inspired." Les Parrott, Ph.D.Author of Love Talk

"Greg Asimakoupoulos' RHYMES AND REASONS beat is truly "poetry in motion." As the latest news headlines break, Greg is already planting and nurturing seeds to harvest a wry, witty and always thought provoking editorial from his own garden of verse.
