    I find it interesting how we are on two different paths, but yet I find I can relate to a lot of what you write. I guess it shows me the more I discover about us humans, the more I can see inner similarities in spite of the outward differences. I also think that our paths may look different on the outside, but it's really the same spiritual journey for each of us toward one God, however we see Him/Her.


    By Jim Breunig (Laurel, MD USA) -
    I found Joe's book refreshing, inspiring and a great change of pace from today's social environment. There's more violence than ever in the media - so it's uplifting to read something positive.

    As the title suggests, Reaching Towards His Unbounded Glory is a spiritually based book. Although I am not a very religious person, I enjoyed the book because it's not overbearing with preaching or religion. This book contains poetic expressions of events and topics that everyone can relate to. These principled messages are good reminders of the simple things in life that we often take for granted.

    Also, I like the format of the book. Unlike a novel, where you may have a long chapter or no place for a good stopping point, this book is a compilation of short versed poetry. This enables you have a quick read while commuting, enjoying a coffee break, or anytime when having a few minutes to relax.

    Reaching Towards His Unbounded Glory is a book you'll want to read again and again. Whenever you feel a little down, this book will take your mind off the annoying things in life to remind us of positive things and what's important.

    Footnote: I feel I should inform you that Joe is my oldest brother. My purpose in providing this fact is to show my honesty and credibility. Having spent many years serving as an army officer, my word is very important to me.

    Here are some customer reviews of my book Reaching Towards His Unbounded Glory; enjoy! ; -D

    By Peter Dugas (Merrimack, NH, USA) -
    I first read your poems while traveling to see a dear friend who is very sick and losing a battle with cancer. Your words calmed my soul and helped me to focus on God's great glory. I read some of these poems, after 'dog-earing' about two-thirds of them to my friend, and she enjoyed the message as well. They are very comforting at any time, but especially so when times are tough and one is looking for a better understanding of 'why', and that turning to Him all the time is the best way to live our lives.

    By Matthew R. Harris (Pasadena, MD, USA) -
    'Reaching Towards His Unbounded Glory' has truly blessed this reader with inspiration. After having just published a Christian book of poetry myself-'Poems On Some Parables Of Christ'-I can appreciate first hand this labor of love that Mr. Breunig has written. I am inspired to know that he is a Christian poet who is unafraid to remind his audience that 'The message of Jesus' story didn't end atop Calvary, / as a rotting corpse, left among the ruins of human debris....Unbeknownst to man, the Earth's foundation suffered / a quaking groundswell, / while the Spirit of Christ descended into fiery depths / and snatched the keys of hell.' The previous lines were quoted from a poem in Mr. Breunig's collection entitled 'Buried.' I hope these lines as well as the rest of 'Reaching Towards His Unbounded Glory' will lift you up as they have me.

    By David A. Buck (Keene, NH, USA) -
    It's one thing to put pen to paper and write things, good or bad that move people in one way or another. This book moved me in a positive way. I find it hard to believe that the author wrote these words from his very own psyche. I'm not accusing plagiarism, but rather inspiration. Many of the thoughts put to paper had to be, in my mind, divinely inspired. So many things we all need to hear, especially in this point in time. I can only hope that someone will read this and have that 'life changing' experience that we all crave. God's thoughts, using man's words. Outstanding! ! !

    Reaching Towards His Unbounded Glory by Joseph J. Breunig 3rd

    As reviewed by the publisher BookSurge, an Amazon.com company

    Reaching Towards His Unbounded Glory by Joseph J. Breunig,3rd, delivers lyrical poems of raw emotion that are autobiographical in nature. These distinctive and original poems are beautifully rendered for their spirituality, love and reverence of God. This collection of poetry is to offer encouragement for others to develop a relationship with Christ. With a firm, steady voice, this emerging Christian poet shares his love of Christ as he examines his relationship with God and the Scriptures. In each of the one hundred poems comprised in this book he manages to convey humanity, spirituality and hope.

    Reaching Towards His Unbounded Glory by Joseph J. Breunig 3rd

    As reviewed by New York Times best selling author Ellen Tanner Marsh

    Any Christian surveying the current state of modern poetry could easily become discouraged, given that much of that poetry can only be categorized as nihilistic. At worst, such poems seemingly promote despair and violence—against society, the church, or even against oneself. At best, they consist of self-centered whining and overdramatic emotionalism, completely devoid of spiritual muscle and ethical backbone.

    New author Joseph J. Breunig 3rd, in his fine debut collection Reaching Towards His Unbounded Glory, takes a fresh stride in the opposite direction, in a poetic compilation that should delight anyone who enjoys reading Christian literature as well as poetry. The book comprises over 100 poems of various lengths, although they generally do not exceed one page. In a slight concession to modern poetic style, some of the stanzas are unrhymed, yet all of them speak to Christian themes, such as faith and its testing, seeking a higher road, the state of grace, error and sin, biblical people and events, and personal redemption through God's word.

    A common thread that runs throughout the majority of the poems is that individuals —regardless of any mistakes they may have made in the past— can still turn to Christ as their savior and begin the slow, sometimes painful, but always positive process of redeeming themselves, in developing a new life filled with abundance and spiritual serenity. By reaching for this new and uplifting collection of Christian poems, readers can indeed begin reaching towards God's glory.

Best Poem of Joseph James Breunig 3rd

Evening Sky

Gazing into a starry night,
I see a deep indigo sky
with perfect placement of twinkling light.
Stars reveal the expanse of time
from before the birth of humanity;
their existence came from dynamic energy
which was created by spoken word
that no man has ever heard.
Solitary spirit of awesome might
painted this heavenly canvas
with a flick of His hand and uttered thought.
Divine creation shared with you and me -
It's part of our heritage and His eternal legacy.

Now that people are becoming more aware of my poetic efforts, interests are being expressed regarding the background of my poetry - in addition, to my spiritual muse. In this installment, I speak to a poem that ends in a direction, not initially considered...
