“Not Just a Crown Of Thorns”

“Not Just A Crown of Thorns” is my first book of prose and poetry, which I love to write. Most of the poems were given to me by God when I was working at my desk doing whatever I was at the given time. Sometimes I am given just an idea and the poem is constructed from that. The words start to flow once I start tapping on the keyboard and on many occasions I am not really thinking about what I am writing, it’s like I am on spiritual auto pilot.

As you will see in my book some of the poems are about books of the Bible, others are just spiritually driven. There are love poems which I actually think are beautiful, some people may think they are rather near the mark but I feel that this is a thought that would come if they were read with the wrong approach in mind.

Some poems were written during times when I was away from the Lord but I have included them because they are fun, different and they help to make for varied reading.


    The first book in the new Belief Books series is Robert O Russell's autobiography, 'The Right Way', written to help others. Further works of fiction and poetry, all of a spiritual nature, are to be published early in 2012 and beyond, in print and e-book format. Robert has no doubt that the power of the Lord will use all his books, placed by God within his heart, to help others to be healed and/or come to know the Lord.
