About the Author:
The author is a small businessman who tries to survive the economic crises in these times during the last three years as well as the loss of his mother and his current divorce, which is his third. He also had open-heart surgery five years ago. He says overcoming obstacles is daily, and no one is immune to struggles. Out of it all, it has brought a massive amount of guilt to the surface of his own. What you read is the purge of the journal inside us all. Although this is his first attempt at writing, he hopes the readers forgive him for his purge of life as the beginning of seeing things differently. He takes full responsibility for his place in life and blames no one for his struggles as he chooses to see only his part in it and the hope in doing things differently according to Christ's instructions at the base of The Sermon on The Mount. He is, as he believes we all are, "poor in spirit."

"Poor in Spirit: Guilty, Convicted, Redeemed" is a 122-page paperback with a retail price of $12.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4349-3688-2. It was published by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. For more information, or to request a review copy, please go to our virtual pressroom at or our online bookstore at
