Gleaning inspiration from his eventful life and spiritual odyssey, wordsmith Maurice Howard shares a collection of poetry that captures the unwavering essence of the love and peace that he found in God. A journey of the heart and soul waits to begin in “God's Love and Grace”.

Howard’s life was riddled with personal battles and tragedies. He shares that he became ensnared in substance abuse but it was during this dark period in his life that he found strength and hope in God. His inspiration for writing also came at this point and it became a source of relief for him. His struggles to break free from addiction and his eventual quest for healing become the foundation upon which his poetic anthology is built. Each poem in “God's Love and Grace” throbs with the emotional intensity of a man who has been through life’s valleys and survived it through God’s grace.

Gripping in its honesty and inspiring in its conclusion, “God's Love and Grace” is a reminder of that flickering light at the end of every tunnel of suffering and an invitation to celebrate and bask in the magnificence of God’s love and mercy.

This book will be featured at the 2012 Illinois Library Association Book Exhibit in Peoria, Ill. on October 9-12, 2012.
