Item Description...
One reason men lack vision is because they lack poetry in their lives. Men no longer sing or recite inspirational verse. Our boys are no longer required to memorize the great psalms, hymns, and poems of Christian manhood. This should come as no surprise. The 20th century has wreaked havoc upon chivalry and manhood. The transformation of poetry from the ennobling to the coarse, the banal, or the irrelevent is as much a sign of our national loss of manhood as it is of the decline of decency and civilization. Poetry is essential to a man's life. We should never forget that God chose to communicate through the language of poetry. A large portion of the Scripture from Psalms to The Song of Solomon - even the book of Isaiah in the original language - was written in verse. Why? Because poetry and song allow us to use the beauty of language to paint mental images of victory, of devotion, and of the beauty of life in Jesus Christ. This is why I often begin my speeches or end them with verse. For years, requests for these poems have poured in. Now, in Poems for Patriarchs, I have compiled the most inspirational and vision-communicating selections. The collection includes poems and prose both obscure and popular, but selected because of the profound way they speak to the most important issues in a man's life. They are neither fluffy nor frilly, foppish nor foolish, but virile and often sage, both as to their composition and character. Each chapter in the book contains a generous number of selections, some new, some ancient, but all designed to address the various biblical roles, relationships and seasons in a man's life, from early boyhood to his twilight years. The book begins with the "Poems of Patriarchy," a section designed to inspire men to think in terms of sacrifice, certitude, and vision. In "Poems of Boyhood," the memories of childhood and glories of being a boy are joyfully proclaimed. "Poems of Sonship" is dedicated to the meaning of honor between father and son. "Poems of the Groom" focuses on a man's love for his wife and the Lord's love for his bride, the Church. "Poems of Fatherhood," includes my favorite poems that remind me of the "big picture" and the glory of raising up sons and daughters for the Lord. Many fathers will especially love "Poems for the Children's Hour" and "Poems of Heroism" because they include some of the very best "daddy read-aloud" poems. Compiled and Edited by Douglas W. Phillips.

Publishers Description
One reason men lack vision is because they lack poetry in their lives. Men on longer sing or recite inspirational verse. Boys are no longer required to memorize the great psalms, hymns, and poems of Christian manhood. In answer to this dilemma, Doug Phillips has in Poems for Patriarchs compiled an inspiring collection of vision-communicating poems and prose--some new, some ancient, but all chosen to address the various biblical roles, relationships and seasons in a man's life. Featuring such classics as "King Alfred's War Song" and "Woodman Spare that Tree," Poems for Patriarchs offers manly verse for men who seek a greater vision for their lives.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Heroic and Inspiring Poetry Collection  Apr 22, 2007
I will admit that I do not share all of the particular religious sympathies of the editor but that does not diminish my enjoyment of this collection of excellent heroic and inspirational poetry with a few equally moving prose pieces thrown in. How many books of poetry could you describe that way these days anyway? The pieces in this book range from touching verses about boyhood to beautiful examples of husbands' devotion to their wives. Others speak of the responsibility of fathers to their children and there is a section devoted to patriotism. (Most of that is solely devoted to American patriotism but I was very pleased to see a couple that were not nation-specific but about patriotism in general.) Though I have to admit as a military historian my favorites are classics such as 'The Charge of the Light Brigade.' Men today need more poetry in their lives and here is a collection which cannot be sadly brushed off as 'for wimps' or 'girly,' as far too many quality things are.

The quality of the book is also exceptional for the price, heavy glossy paper and sturdy binding. I will be giving a few copies of this as gifts in the future.
Excellent  Aug 23, 2006
We have ordered this book three times, because we keep giving it away!It is well written and refreshing in a time that Biblical patriarchy has not been embraced, but should be!This has an excellent compilation of poems for men, young and old.We have ordered many Vision Forum books and have always been very pleased with the quality and content in them.
