Australian Author Publishes New Book of Inspirational Poetry

February 20, 2014   Entertainment News
(PRLEAP.COM) "A Bit of Madness," a new book by Chris Michael Johnson, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

"Dear children! In a special way I call you all to pray
for my intentions so that, through your prayers, you may
stop Satan's plan over this world, which is further from God
every day, and which puts itself in the place of God and is
destroying everything that is beautiful and good in the souls
of each of you. Therefore, little children, arm yourselves
with prayer and fasting so that you may be conscious of how
much God loves you and may carry out God's will. Thank you
for having responded to my call."
-Our Lady of Medjugorje's Message, October 25, 2008

This quoted part of Chris Michael Johnson's poem "Responding-Our Lady's Medjugorje Message, October 25, 2008" is the central theme of his collection of poems written in "A Bit of Madness."

Johnson had, for a time, battled his own demons and mental illness until his spiritual reawakening and rekindled love and devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ whose Second Coming he awaits in the last days of this world. The verses and lines of his poems spoke of his personal experiences and observations of a world gone wayward, influenced by Satan, continually turning away from God's love.
