Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Jacksonville, AR - Oct 05, 2018 - James G. Owen, a senior microbiologist and certified water analyst from Gravel Ridge, Arkansas, who spends his free time dabbling in art, biblical studies, and Hebrew culture, has completed his new book “The Breaking of the Pumpernickel: Savoring the Beauty of God”: a fruitful meditation on God’s living word.
James shares, “Those of us who choose to look toward God in the heavens reach out for the morsels of bread, of the flavorful and fragrant fresh pumpernickel. We place the Word in our mouths and savor the taste while reflecting on how beautiful the five senses God has given us to enjoy his provisions of this world and his supernatural world. For his beauty is received with the five senses he has given us to experience him in touch, taste, sight, smell, and sound. Yes, we can touch God as the woman who touched the hem, the ‘tzitzit’ of the ‘tallit’ (prayer shawl) that Jesus wore. Since he has gone away and ready to return, we experience the touch through prayer and his anointing. We experience God’s beauty through sight in the forms of dreams and visions, but in the biblical times, people experienced God’s beauty through his Son Jesus and his ministry and in the experience of Moses who saw God but could not see his face. We taste of his goodness through our emotions of answered prayer and his anointing when worshipping him.”
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, James G. Owen’s new book is an enriching, wide-ranging meditation ranging from musings on God’s creation and acts of love to insights on the strands of scripture that fit together like a puzzle.
