Mere Christianity – A Stack Poem

Stack Poem

Mere Christianity
Who Really Has the Answer?
I’m Glad You Asked

Six Hours One Friday
The Day Christ Died
God Came Near

From Resurrection to Pentecost
It’s Not About Me
At Jesus’ Feet
Won by Love

What’s So Amazing About Grace?
Peace Like a River
A Love Worth Giving
The Light and the Glory

Walking with God Day by Day
Streams in the Desert
A Life God Rewards
In the Footsteps of Jesus

About Linda Kruschke

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. Such a wonderful, spiritual theme – and it’s amazing to see how this poetic framework reinforces the personality of the author, because it is based on titles in the author’s own library.

    A strong and stirring message in this poem Lisa. Nice work! I too have read and know of many of these books. I’ve recently started to read Embracing Grace by Daniel Brown, heard of it? So far so good.

    Some of those books are on my shelves too; this poem – and the library it came from – says much about what matters most to you, Linda.

  7. Very much like a prayer or a gospel. well done.
