It is a fact of life that everybody will die. But death is not the end; nor it is not man’s “Final Destination” (published by Xlibris). Author Lyle F. Bradley, inspired by a dream he had, wrote a poetry collection brimming with Scriptural truths of how man can be saved and how he can reach the gates of heaven. This book first published in 2014 receives a new marketing campaign.
“A poll taken in 2008 revealed that approximately 80 percent of those being polled claimed to be Christians. Of this 80 percent more than half, 57 percent, said that they believed there were ways of getting to Heaven other than through Jesus Christ. Now, the Scriptures tell us that the only way to God and Heaven is through his Son, Jesus Christ,” Bradley said.
Through waves of rhythm and rhyme, the author enabled readers to see that the only way to reach heaven, as their final destination, is Jesus Christ. The author’s conviction in this belief was deeply embedded in his lyrical pieces, allowing his poems to seep through the reader’s heart as they immerse themselves in his works.
Inspirational and timeless, the pieces talks about life and death not as separate matters but one being a continuation of the other. Drawn from the author’s own experiences, the poems provide a window not only to the author’s life well-lived but to an array of thoughts and insights that will encourage readers to get excited rather than dread their “Final Destination.”
An excerpt from the poem, “Final Destination:”
And after the long day is over,
when we’ve said our final prayer;
Jesus will come and take our hand
And lead us from here to there
