This book of inspirational rhymes is truly charming. The cadences and the clear attention to the craft make it impossible not to feel good while reading this. The Bible passages included were fitting, and the messages of the poetry are spiritually uplifting.

I think my favourite of these is Donkey Tale. The imagery and the presence of God just made me joyful.

I'm so glad that I have this so that in trying times I can just pick one of these rhymes to comfort me.

A comfortable book of poems, full of sincerity and warmth. Written in a natural rhyming cadence, this debut collection includes moral tales starring animal heroes, poignant vignettes from the author's life, and encouragement for the Christian soul. Effortlessly combining the mundane and profound, these poems are truly timeless.

"Timeless Tales" by John Alexander is a thought-provoking collection of poems sprinkled with fitting passages from the Bible.

The second part, blessings for you, share the hope for happiness and aid in our daily life where there are troubles and cares. The third part and final par

What a wonderful collection of poems this is. The inside is just as lovely as in the outside cover art. There is peace and comfort and warmth found within the pages of Timeless Tales. One of my favorites is "Donkey Tale," which is the tale of a lonely, awkward donkey who is made fun of by others until he meets a man who lifts his burdens. The man ends up riding on his back into the city where palms are laid at their feet. "The Grand's Christmas" is another sweet poem about grandparents spending ...more

Bring you blessings and joy,

I escaped for a while.
