A Friend of the Earth is an interesting, kind of dismal story about a man dealing with his past problems while living a routine existence – until his ex-wife comes on the scene and rocks his mundane world with the glories of yesterday and the promise to help return meaning to his uneventful life. The author sets the stage of his story in the future and gives the reader a disheartening account of how bad the world has become. 2025 is a world where many animals and aquatic life are extinct, global warming is a reality, and the earth is populated with people who have a nonchalant attitude of towards grimly future. The main character, Tyrone Tierwater lives in this world and at one time fought against those who mistreated the earth.

The Power of the Prophetic Blessing takes the reader into the Old and New Testament of the Bible and teaches them about the blessings mentioned within its pages. The Priestly Blessing and the Prophetic Blessing are both touched upon; however, the main focus is on the Prophetic Blessing. The Prophetic blessing is a blessing spoken, in prayer, onto another by someone who has spiritual authority to do so; it’s about the future of that person and the path God has chosen for them.
