This book is worth every penny. I have already given away more copies as gifts that I have for myself.
"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. His rhymes provide lively family conversation starters anytime and anywhere." -Donna Erickson, host of award winning Donna's Day airing on public television, newspaper columnist for King Features Syndicate, speaker and author of Donna Erickson's Fabulous Funstuff for Families.
"With a poet's pen, Greg Asimakoupoulos is able to bring clarity and poignant observations to today's headlines. There are many commentators today, but Greg is the only person I know who can use the daily news to highlight moral truths in free verse. His voice is unique among us." U.S. Congressman Peter J. Roskam (IL-6)
"There's no "rhyme or reason" why you would NOT want to grab this book! Pastor Greg is a gifted communicator with the ability to put into prose what you're thinking but cannot always articulate! His writings are contemporary, innovative poetry peeks into the heart of man - and God - in a world gone mad. Read him once and you'll be hooked--I am!" Peggie C. Bohanon, publisher of [...]
"Greg is able to use his special gifts to share truth, compassion, faith, humor and God's love. When life's trials were at a peak for our family, his poetic and sensitive words brought comfort." Peggy Beamer (mother of September 11th patriot Todd Beamer)
"The poetry in this volume conquers contemporary complexity with a mixture of rhapsodic prose and an almost eerie moral clarity. It projects buoyancy and hope while reflecting, with optical precision, the spontaneous surgings of the human spirit. Well done Reverend Greg!" --Rabbi Daniel Lapin, American Alliance of Jews and Christians.
"For more than two decades I have appreciated Greg Asimakoupoulos' creative way of stringing words together. The denomination I serve has been enriched by his unique contributions both in the pulpit and on paper." Glenn R. Palmberg, President of The Evangelical Covenant Church
"I find great delight recommending Greg's poetry. He is a close friend and constant encourager to the ministry of CBS. We always post his thought-provoking poetry on our website. I know you will be blessed by reading his creations." Camilla Seabolt, Executive Director of Community Bible Study
"My long-time friend is a true raconteur. Greg freely takes whatever is offered up from the passing parade as fodder for poetic commentaries.His word pictures are at times deeply probing, deliberately ironic, or have a touch of the godly. The reader should expect the unexpected". David S. Noreen, Editor, [......]
