Author Biography

Hailing from Virginia, Calvert Tynes has always had a close
relationship with God. Through grace, he was inspired to use the
written word to document his thoughts and observations. Calvert
began to write as an outlet, but it quickly became apparent that his
writings were beginning to form a book that others would enjoy
reading. A decade after writing his first poem, Calvert’s book was
ready to see the light of day, filling a gap not only in the spiritual
realm, but also in the Christian category.

    Book Review

Reviewed by Lee Ashford for Readers' Favorite

“God’s Love” by Calvert Tynes is a book of one man’s poetry, written over a period of 10 years. The tenor of the poetry clearly reflects Calvert’s mood and mental/spiritual attitude at the time when he wrote each particular poem. Some of his poetry will resonate with readers, while others may be difficult for some to comprehend. However, I believe each reader will find that different poems resonate with him/her individually, when compared with other readers, and that is how it should be. Some of the poetry in this book is clearly written in praise of God, while other poems seem to be written to his wife or children. Many, however, could well serve either classification.

It is obvious from his poetry that Calvert Tynes has faced rough times during his life. Yet even during those times he turned to God for comfort and healing. In that respect he is no different from anybody else, and his faith serves as an example we should all follow. We should NOT all write books of poetry, but we should all turn to our faith in God when our lives face unexpected turmoil and strife. I believe many people will find “God’s Love” to be an uplifting and beneficial book to have on hand, and to use regularly whenever they feel a need to draw closer to God during a time of spiritual poverty. For poetry-loving Christians and non-Christians alike, this is a history of one man putting his faith on the line and on the page, to bless and lift up all who need spiritual sustenance.
